The “Hidden Gem” of the San Bernardino Mountains, Green Valley Lake is, at 7000´, a higher resort community than either Lake Arrowhead or Big Bear. This “best kept secret on the mountain” is secluded (nearly four miles away from State Highway 18), and surrounded by National Forest. For all these reasons it has remained small, picturesque, and uncrowded. Green Valley Lake has something going on all the time. For a little town, we sure stay busy. Our town boasts of a pretty little lake that is stocked often with plentiful fish, and a small beach for swimming.
