UCLA Lake Arrowhead Lodge

The UCLA Lake Arrowhead Lodge is a 50-acre conference center and family resort located on the north shore of Lake Arrowhead. From September to May, the Lodge welcomes solo adventurers, vacationing couples and families, and those attending conferences and retreats. The remaining months are dedicated to serving UCLA Alumni and affiliates at Bruin Woods – a family-friendly summer camp.

Situated in the heart of the San Bernardino National Forest, the Lake Arrowhead Lodge is poised to minimize its impact on the environment. Here are some of its current initiatives.



In response to California’s drought, hydration stations have been installed throughout the property to refill reusable water bottles, and drought-tolerant vegetation accents the natural landscape.

Water-saving efforts have been focused on bathrooms, automatic faucets and toilets in all public areas. In addition, guest rooms have ultra-low-flow toilets.

Carbon-Free Electricity

The Lake Arrowhead Lodge exclusively uses electricity generated from eco-friendly solar panels, which reduces carbon emissions compared to conventional power sources and eliminates reliance on electricity supplied by Southern California Edison.


To reach our goal of 90% diversion from landfills, waste diversion programs have been implemented. Recycling bins are located in each room and office. Ink cartridge recycling and the clothing donation program with community partners also help us achieve this goal.


Sustainable transportation measures include GEM carts and electric vehicles for on-site transportation, as well as electric vehicle charging stations for guests.

More Information

The Lake Arrowhead Lodge works with local utilities and community partners to take advantage of rebate programs to reduce the financial impact of implementing these strategies.
