The Story of Cedar Lake


The old Cedar Lake mill. - Rick Keppler collection

The old Cedar Lake mill movie set was built for “Trail Of The Lonesome Pine” in 1936. – Rick Keppler collection

A couple miles west of the Big Bear village, up in the hills off of USFS road 2N10, nestled in the woods, is a small manmade lake, which is the home of the Cedar Lake Christian Camp.  Today it  provides lodging and camping accommodations to private groups, and is also a popular location for the film industry.

Cedar Lake was constructed in 1928, as part of an ambitious resort and real estate development that never materialized .  Since then, hundreds of movies have been filmed in this picturesque location.  Click here for more photos, and the story of historic Cedar Lake.
