Big Lake is a favorite spot in northwest Missouri for boating. The park offers a boat launch to make access to the lake easy and convenient. For those who don’t have a boat, the park rents two- and three-person canoes and single-person kayaks along with life jackets and paddles. Visitors can stop by the campground check station or park office to see what’s available.
