You and your students deserve a fun and exciting outdoor adventure!
Big Bear Adventures specializes in outdoor recreation with the emphasis on fun! With a variety of activities to offer, we have found our packages to be very popular among youth groups (several shorter activities tend to keep their attention and excitement satisfied!)
In 1999, we introduced our River Rafting Trips, which have been a huge hit with students, teachers, and chaperones alike! Our trips run on the very last part of the crystal-clear Sturgeon River, where it slows down and is an easier section, yet still exciting. We own the "Put-in" point (only 2 miles away & all paved roads), and our ending is in beautiful Burt Lake State Park! The Park offers over 2,000 feet of sandy beach (great for swimming and playing!), and a large, grassy day-use picnic area w/ playground equipment, under towering oak and pine trees. The Rafts promote teamwork and are nearly impossible to tip over – a real relief to chaperones and parents!
Located directly across from the State Park entrance in Indian River, we have a log cabin general store filled w/ snacks & goodies, a "SUBWAY" Restaurant, a picnic area, and don't miss our 8 foot tall World Record Alaskan Brown Bear!
We also have some fun "interactive" attractions too - "TwinSpin" and "Water Wars"! New In 2012! we are opening 2 new and exciting attractions—a challenging Ropes Course and Bumper Boats!
We even have "Sumo Wrestling" for large, high school groups, or giant, "Inflatable Bouncers" for really young groups—call for rates if interested!

Less than a mile away is the World's Largest Crucifix – "The Cross in the Woods", which welcomes groups free of charge.
