is a visitors center, a dump station and a shower facility
that offers hot showers. Just around the corner from the
campground is a country store that has a nice selection
of camping needs, including boat rentals. For boat rentals

all other days 8:00am-5:00pm. Activities in the Big Lake
Recreation Area include fishing, boating, horseback riding,
hiking, mountainbiking and wildlife viewing.

a doubt, you can catch some big fish here. Check out the
numerous photos at the store for proof.
far from Big Lake is both the Lee Valley Recreation Area
and the East Fork Recreation Area. At Lee Valley, there
are great hiking and horseback trails leading up the mountain.

much better in Arizona. For more information check out the
visitor center at Big Lake.
Here is the link for the Big Lake Tackle and Supply located on the lake for information about boat rentals.
