The ELKS LODGE is a familiar site located at the west end of the Village of Big Bear Lake.  Big Bear Lake ELKS are a part of the history of Big Bear Valley.  Many members have moved away, while current members are always keeping the ELKS traditions available to the community. For years many community events have frequently taken place at the Big Bear Lake ELKS LODGE; because of the large size of the building, as well as the versatile rooms, such as the large banquet and meeting room, the game room, the bar and lounge; then there’s the outdoor area.    


ELKS statement of mission is To inculcate the principles of Charity, Justice, Brotherly Love and Fidelity; to recognize a belief in God; to promote the welfare and enhance the happiness of its Members; to quicken the spirit of American patriotism; to cultivate good fellowship; to perpetuate itself as a fraternal organization, and to provide for its government, the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks of the United States of America will serve the people and communities through benevolent programs, demonstrating that ELKS and ELKS share.
