Located just off Interstate 29 halfway between Kansas City and Omaha, Big Lake State Park was one of the first public recreation areas in northwest Missouri. Today, visitors to the 407-acre park can enjoy picnic areas, a swimming pool, boat launch, fishing, bird watching, dining in the park’s restaurant, and facilities for lodging and camping.
Visitors are welcome to stay overnight in the park’s motel or rent one of the comfortable lakeshore cabins that are available. You will find Big Lake State Park to be a restful and peaceful place, but one that also provides fun, water sports and outstanding bird watching.
Big Lake State Park offers basic and electric campsites. On-season (April through October) services include a dump station, modern restrooms, showers, water, laundry and reservable sites. Reservations can be made for stays during the on-season. There is a required two-night minimum stay for reservations on weekends. Firewood is sold at the park store during the on-season. Campers planning to carry in firewood must comply with current firewood advisories. During the off-season (November through March), potable water is available from the frost-free spigot at the dump station.
