There are so many things to do and see in, and around, Lake Arrowhead. And if you're the outdoorsy type, then you'll want to stop in at the San Bernardino Ranger Station/Lake Arrowhead to plan some of your outdoor events: hiking or camping or picnicking. At the ranger station you can buy your ADVENTURE PASS (you must have one), get maps of trails and campgrounds. Always let the ranger station folks know when you're heading out on a hike.
You'll also learn how to have a safe, mountain experience. You may WANT to reserve your camping spot SOON. I drove thru "Dogwood Campground this morning on my way to the office and took a few pictures (see video below). Dogwood campground is so peaceful & beautiful and lush with pines, cedars, oaks and, of course, dogwoods. Call to make your reservations: (909-382-2782).
