Ancient trees surround each site in the Holcomb Valley Campground—just north of Big Bear Lake—giving this pastoral area an air of solemnity and seclusion. Named for a grizzly hunter-cum-gold prospector in 1862, this idyllic location is busting at the seams with archeological treasures and artifacts from years past, so packing in/packing out is essential.
