RS Vacations Big Bear is doing its part to help everyone stay safe and healthy. UPDATE 5/15/20: We have been given the go-ahead to begin accepting reservations once again. Our calendars have been opened up and we will keep them open unless directed by the state/county/city to block them again. Please contact us with any questions or concerns.

If you choose to book for future dates and a stay home order is reinstated, we will most certainly be flexible and work with you on a free cancellation or change of dates. We’re in this together!!

We also want you to know that we take cleaning and disinfecting seriously, and our cleaners are trained and supplied with specialty cleaning supplies that will kill the virus on all surfaces. Each cabin is thoroughly cleaned and made ready just before your arrival.

Although we are still stocking our cabins with basics including paper towels and toilet paper, supplies are limited. During your stay in Big Bear please plan on bringing your own groceries, paper towels, toilet paper, etc.  We only have 2 grocery stores and many items are out of stock – and that’s just with our local residents shopping.  Bringing your own groceries, paper towels, toilet paper, etc. will assure you have everything you need for a great getaway, and will save you time and frustration in the grocery store.

El Dorado Fire Update #8
September 22, 2020 – 5:30 pm
BIG BEAR ADVISORY LIFTED
As a result of firefighters gaining additional containment on the El Dorado Fire over the past several days, Fire incident commanders have ordered the fire advisory for the Big Bear area to be lifted effective immediately. There are currently no restrictions on travel to and from the Big Bear Valley.
THREAT FROM EL DORADO FIRE GREATLY REDUCED, CITY TO DISCONTINUE UPDATES
Thankfully, the threat to Big Bear from the El Dorado Fire has been greatly reduced due to the dedicated work of Fire personnel over the past two weeks. The City greatly appreciates their hard work!
Unless the fire becomes more concerning to Big Bear, this will be the final update from the City of Big Bear Lake regarding the El Dorado Fire.
The City will initiate additional public communications as necessary for any future threats from the El Dorado Fire or any new emergencies impacting Big Bear Lake.
Frank A. Rush, Jr., City Manager – City of Big Bear Lake
El Dorado FireUpdate #5
September 17, 2020 – 5 pm
BIG BEAR ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT THIS WEEKEND, VISITORS STILL ENCOURAGED TO POSTPONE TRIPS UNTIL AFTER THE FIRE THREAT HAS PASSED.
The City of Big Bear Lake and the entire Big Bear Valley remain under a fire advisory for this weekend due to the El Dorado Fire, and visitors are still encouraged to postpone trips until after the fire threat has passed.
Although not an imminent threat to Big Bear Lake at this time, the El Dorado Fire is still a significant concern for our community. It is important for our community to be as prepared as possible IF an evacuation warning or order becomes necessary, and we are still seeking to minimize the population in the Big Bear Valley to enable a faster, more efficient evacuation IF ultimately necessary.
EL DORADO FIRE CONTINUES TO BURN JUST SOUTH OF SR 38, FIRE PERSONNEL ARE SUCCESSFULLY HOLDING THE FIRE THUS FAR.
The El Dorado Fire has continued to burn in the same general area for the past few days, and the northern edge remains just south of SR 38, approximately 5 1/2 miles due south of Big Bear Lake. Fire personnel continue to work hard to contain the fire, and efforts are focused on preventing the fire from crossing SR 38. Thus far, their efforts have been successful, and the City greatly appreciates their diligent efforts.
The El Dorado Fire (thankfully) does not pose an imminent threat to Big Bear Lake at this time, but it remains a significant concern and we continue to closely monitor the threat to our community. City officials remain in close contact with Fire officials, and will adjust our guidance for our community if / when necessary due to changing conditions.
Much of the terrain between the El Dorado Fire and the City of Big Bear Lake is steep and rugged, and SR 38 and the Santa Ana River are key trigger points for future Fire management decisions. IF the El Dorado Fire crosses SR 38, it is possible that an evacuation warning will be issued. IF the fire crosses the Santa Ana River, it is possible that an evacuation order will be issued.
The City encourages everyone to remain vigilant, continue to monitor the fire status, and plan accordingly if the fire threat escalates.

BIG BEAR LAKE IS STILL NOT UNDER ANY EVACUATION WARNINGS OR ORDERS AT THIS TIME.
The City of Big Bear Lake and the entire Big Bear Valley remain under a fire advisory due to the El Dorado Fire, and this advisory is intended to raise community awareness about the potential threat to our community from the El Dorado Fire.
Neither the City of Big Bear Lake nor any other communities in the Big Bear Valley are under an evacuation warning or an evacuation order at this time. Residents should continue to monitor the City’s email updates (subscribe by clicking here), the City’s website, the City’s Facebook page (City of Big Bear Lake – City Government), on Twitter (@CityofBBL), or on Instagram (citybigbearlake) for the most current information pertaining to the City of Big Bear Lake.
The next step, IF it is eventually warranted, is the issuance of a formal evacuation warning, which will direct our residents to prepare for a potential evacuation order. The purpose of the evacuation warning is to provide ample time for residents to gather important documents, medications, clothing, and pet supplies, and make other arrangements IF an evacuation order ultimately becomes necessary. IF an evacuation order is issued, residents will be advised to leave Big Bear immediately due to an imminent fire threat.
All residents are advised to closely monitor the El Dorado Fire, and take appropriate precautions based on your individual circumstances. Everyone is always under a voluntary evacuation order at all times, and if you have special needs or concerns, please make appropriate preparations based on your specific circumstances.
Be safe!

Take a hike to Castle Rock, ride the chairlift at Snow Summit and mountain bike down miles of trails, take a 4 x 4 expedition through the back country, fly through the forest on a zip-line adventure, take a lake cruise and see the colors from below or take a helicopter tour and admire the beauty of the mountains from above.

IGNITE

IGNITE

Formed in 1993 in the suburbs of Orange County during the height of Seattle Grunge and the Epitaph Records punk revival, IGNITE have made a career defying convention with against the grain music and thought provoking, politically charged lyricism. From prior efforts including “Call On My Brothers” (1995), “Past Our Means” (1996) and “A Place Called Home” (2000), the band’s records have distinguished themselves with complex arrangements, triumphant hooks and IGNITE’s calling card: frontman Zoli Teglas’ unmistakable, soaring vocals.

 

DEATH BY STEREO

DEATH BY STEREO

DBS, as they are known by many of their loyal followers, have assembled a worldwide fan base built upon a seemingly endless international tour schedule, with enough passport stamps to make many of their contemporaries jealous. They have shared the stage many times over with the likes of Slipknot, AFI, Serj Tankian, Avenged Sevenfold, and Rise Against, just to name a few. They have headlined some of the biggest and best festivals around the world (Germany’s “With Full Force”, Belgium’s “Grozerock”, U.S.‘s “Warped Tour” and Colombia’s “Rock Al Parque”). Having toured in over 20 countries is an accomplishment few bands of any stature can lay claim to.

WHITEKAPS

WHITEKAPS

In 1983 Dean Briggs, Glenn McKenzie, Mike Burton and Bob Becker, all high school friends, started a band heavily influenced by the surf / skate culture and the sounds of bands like Agent Orange, The Gears, Simpletones, The Crowd and JFA. Known for their humorous lyrics and fun raucous shows that included a lot of crowd involvement, beer and barely clad punk rock girls, the Whitekaps played with most of the bands they grew up loving as well as the 90’s wave of punk bands such as Greenday, Offspring, Blink 182, and more.
