Lake Arrowhead Village

The village at Lake Arrowhead is a picturesque town with fine-dining and water-themed activities. Lake Arrowhead Village is home to Lollipop Park, a family fun park on the very tip of a peninsula which extends into the lake. Get great family photos and enjoy go-carts, a carousel, bumper cars, and more! When you have finished with the rides and the big playground on the East side of the park, you can make your way up to Lake Arrowhead Village Beach which is the northernmost point on the peninsula. Enjoy great panoramic views of the lake, as well as picture perfect scenery. The beach is also a great place for a picnic. Easy to find, simply set your GPS for Lake Arrowhead Village or 28200 CA-189, Lake Arrowhead, CA 92352, and follow the signs to the public parking. You will be right at the edge of the lake when you get there.

North Shore Campground

Whether you stay to camp or just enjoy some day-use activities, North Shore Campground is a must see.
