Park Temporarily Closed – Big Lake State Park

For temporary closures related to weather, stewardship activities and maintenance, click here to visit our Park and Site Status Map.

The park is partially closed due to the effects of area flooding and lack of levee protection.

The picnic area, shelter house and boat launch will be open for the 2021 season. The campground, swimming pool and camper cabins will remain closed through much of the 2021 season. No camping reservations will be accepted for the year 2021; should conditions allow for reopening the campground and cabins, the sites will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Please consider visiting other Missouri state parks and historic site campgrounds.
