Our simple lodgings are a perfect fit for your festival experience. From dorms with shared baths to camping sites with shared baths, we have accommodations to suit every budget. There are also many very nice hotels and home rentals within a few miles.
Many people ask us why we serve vegetarian food in our Dining Hall. The answer is simple. A primarily vegetarian diet fulfills one of Big Bear Yoga Festival’s core values—sustainability. It consumes less resources and leaves a smaller carbon footprint. If you’ve never eaten a vegetarian meal, we encourage you to try it. You’ll be surprised by how hearty and flavorful vegetarian food can be, and how good you’ll feel eating it Namaste
