You are welcome.
If your friend is Green, they will appreciate the closer location to Big Bear, tho it is still 1/2 hour to get to it. When the beer runs out, at least you have a fighting chance of a timely relief.
They may turn even greener tho
when they realize they have to use the 2 or 4 holers. The hosts at Heartbar clean EVERY day, and for pit toilets, they are actually pretty good. BUT.. they are still pit toilets and can get a bit unpleasant near the evening hours.
There are easy and pleasant hikes there. Ask Sharron or Peggy, the hosts, how to get to the river trail. In the area near to the campground, it is flat and easy and goes along the Santa Ana and across the meadow. A pleasant stroll. My pups and I do this frequently and I have limited breathing capabilites at that elevation. I have no probelms on this trail.
You can also try the dispersed sites just up the road from the campground, maybe 1/4 mile. They are reasonable.
BUT.... the bear activety is high there. Please don't shoot one like some dope did when I was there last weekend.
They go into the organized campground too. Might want to warn greeny they won't eat them, but they are there at nite all the time.
Good luck! I hope you have a great time!
Look for the red and white burro
if you go there, I am up almost every other weekend.
