Big Lake has a couple of restaurants, a grocery, a resort and a nine-hole golf course. This small village is an extremely pawpular spot to enjoy a day of water sports on the lake. The Big Lake itself is a great place to kayak or canoe with your furry friend! There is a public boat ramp located on the southwest side of the lake for easy access.
