    Big Lake, Small Community

    This large lake has a very tight-knit community that gathers together throughout the year for one reason: their love of this lake. It isn't hard to see why as the activities you can do here are limitless!

    Bring your pontoon and spend a day soaking up some sun or get a little waterskiing in. If you're more of a kayaking/canoeing fan, then don't fret, as that's popular here as well! Before you head out onto the water, make sure you grab a rod and reel! Anglers can expect to catch bluegill, northern pike, largemouth bass, and yellow perch.
