at Big Lake. There is a country store for most of your needs
including boat rentals, ice, food and fishing gear. For
boat rentals call 928-521-1387. Store hours are as follows;
weekend:6:00am-6:00pm, all other days 8:00am-5:00pm. Check
out some of the years best catches in the pictures under
the glass at the register. You really can't miss when you
get a campsite at Big Lake, virtually every amenity is available!
Showers and a dump station are located just east of the
Rainbow Campground. The Visitor
Center is located just before you reach the Rainbow campground
and there are often scheduled activities so check it out
when you arrive.
