The Boathouse Dog Beach is an excellent, off-leash, dog-friendly beach for owners with well-behaved dogs. It is located in the small city of Big Bear Lake in Southern California, lying on the banks of Big Bear Lake. It is surrounded by the San Bernardino National Forest, a hundred miles northeast of Los Angeles.
While the beach is mostly rocks and has some grass, it is a charming place. It has what can be described as a kind of a mini bar and a singer. A lot of people visit with dogs but the place doesn’t usually feel crowded. If you are looking for a beach bar that offers great food and allows you to bring Fido, this is the place to be.
In addition to entertaining your canine family member and serving nice food and drinks, there are some good activities and services here also. This includes volleyball and horseshoes as well as a boat tie-up. You can use the last facility if you are a customer of the Boathouse Lakeside Tavern.
Your pup can easily stretch his or her legs and even make some friends. The Big Bear area has a lot of dog-friendly hiking trails and dog parks. This makes the Boathouse Dog Beach a haven for your entire family, including members with more than two legs! Whether you live here or are visiting the San Bernardino Mountains, don’t miss this dog beach.
You can also explore the San Bernardino National Forest and its mountain trails. There is even a ski resort in the area and plenty of restaurants. There are also some learner slopes and terrain parks as well as boutiques and gift shops around. You get a nice blend of an outdoor experience and modern facilities. Make sure to clean up after your dog and be mindful of others on this off-leash beach.
