OverviewBoulder Group Campground is a great place to bring an extended family or large group for a relaxing camping excursion. Its convenient location provides access to all of the area's greatest recreation opportunities and lets campers relax and enjoy nature in the pine-covered mountains of Southern California.
The group campground is located in the San Bernardino National Forest, south of Big Bear Lake. It is accessed via a dirt road, just off the main highway through the area. The campground is situated in a somewhat secluded stand of mature conifers, which provide much shade.

The campground offers one large group site for tent and RV camping. It can accommodate up to 40 people and eight vehicles. The site is equipped with picnic tables, grills and a campfire circle. Vault toilets are provided, but drinking water is not available and there are no trash collection services at the campground.
The Big Bear Discovery Center is located about 10 miles from the campground. It provides a variety information about the area, a gift shop, accessible educational programs and restroom facilities. An interpretive trail is available near the center.
