The space
Please be aware that there are security cameras on the property at the entrance & restricted areas for guest safety and security.

BCL is Fifteen Minutes from famous Coloma, the Historic Gold Mining Town. BCL is Fifteen Minutes from the South Fork of the American River & 25 minutes from the North Fork of the American River. BCL is 5 minutes from the El Dorado National Forest with designated hiking trails, a creek, picnic tables, & ample free parking. BCL is a unique park-like property with wildlife, a natural artesian spring fed pond and 6.5 million square feet of privacy. Bear Creek Lodge is a perfect location for Honeymooners and Nature lovers.

It is Important to Note:

If you require high speed WiFi, please make arrangements ahead of time to bring your own Hot Spot, as Bear Creek Lodge is located in a remote area and has trees more than 100 feet in height that canopy the entire Lodge and throughout the entire property. BCL provides a Verizon 4G Hot Spot and a WIFI Extender, but if you require High Speed, there will be challenges due to the density of the majestic trees on the property.

Although we have Direct TV on 3 of the four TV’s @ BCL, weather conditions can interrupt service at times. We provide DVD’s & BluRay movies on the upper level & Main level for guests of all ages for entertainment while at BCL, for Free of Charge.

Also Important to Note:

Your stay at Bear Creek Lodge has much wildlife and small critters. Being hyper-vigilant about keeping doors closed into the Lodge and keeping ALL food debris cleaned up at ALL times in ALL areas inside & out of the Lodge is extremely important for guest safety & enjoyment!

We provide a Bear Box at the Front Entrance of the property, well away from the Lodge to place landfill & recyclables in during & after your stay.

I am a daughter, sister, mother, auntie, great aunt, & former business owner. I was born & raised in the Midwest (Kansas & Missouri). I ventured out to San Francisco when I was just a youngster for several years & found my way down to the Los Angeles area for the next 30 years. After enough concrete jungle, it was time to capture my own serenity in the majestic wilderness of El Dorado National Forest @ “Bear Creek Lodge.” I endeavor to create the same serenity for all visiting guests @ Bear Creek Lodge, so that they may relax, unwind, & enjoy the significance of renewal that comes with being surrounded by Mother Nature, in a private & well-appointed Lodge.
