Groceries are generally more expensive in Big Bear; so when we stay at the lodge our family takes up an ice chest holding some items from home (milk, eggs, cheese, meats, etc); and I bring up cereal, bread, etc. We like easy fast meals, lots of snacks, and utilizing the BBQ. We go out to eat, and order delivery as well; but we love to have things in the kitchen.
