This is the story about the Peter Pan Woodland Club resort at Big Bear Lake. For many years it was Big Bear’s most exclusive resort.  It also created Big Bear City.

The historical images in this video were provided by the latest edition of “Vanishing Big Bear-2”, and from the historical collections of Rick Keppler and Mark Durban.

“Vanishing Big Bear-2” is a hardbound 8.5” x 11” book. It is available online at, at, and at local merchants throughout Big Bear Lake.
