11 Reviews of Big Lake State Park
nice, basic campground

The state park is well maintained but doesn’t have a lot of bells and whistles! Sites are flat, mostly pull through. Bathrooms and showers are nice and clean. Pool was closed for construction when we stayed, but looked nice. They have really nice little cabins for rent is camping isn’t your strong suit! Not much in the area to visit if fishing isn’t your thing though! There is a drive through nature preserve fairly close but we didn’t go do it. Kayak rental is available but if fishing isn’t your thing this might not be the park for you. Lots of flat roads for biking though!

Good damp ground quite lake

Nice lake, campground was good, there are basic sites up against the lake and the rest are electric. Basic sites are large and some of the electric are also. The majority are pull through sites. Everything is fairly level and they have nice park, picnic areas and boat ramp. You can kayak, canoe, jet ski, and boat. Its olny 30ft at the deepest point.

Small quiet park

Small park.sites are right next to each other. Picnic tables and fire pits are on site gravel. All roads are narrow one way with the dumpstation at the back end of park with trash dumpsters there. So on a sunday you will get stuck in the dumpstation line to drop off your trash even if you don't need to dump. Bathrooms are clean and well maintained. Sites are pretty level. Great playground area for the kids.

Family friendly

Spmewhar small but quaint…..very family friendly there are not a lot of "party people" that frequent here. It is a well kept park and we love it!

Interesting

This state park is a unique are. It is literally a big lake in the middle of farm land. At the time of our visit, improvements were being made to the pool and restrooms. The campsites are spaced and right on the lake. Fair warning the wind blows off the lake and can be very chilly. Not much hiking options around this park but the camp host was very friendly.
