Big Lake is only minutes from our cabin… on foot.  The Big Lake North State Recreation Site is almost as close – less than 2 miles distant.

Family gathering at Big Lake

There is a boat launch and picnic area with small beach.  On several occasions we have packed a small lunch or snack and met other family members at the lake. 


The water temperature matches the comfortably warm air.

You have your choice of covered picnic area or just sitting out in the grassy areas nearer the lake.  There are several charcoal grills and plenty of water access.




Not every day of the Alaskan summer is this nice.  SO one thing is certain.  When you get the day in Alaska, you take it! 

Chillin' during the long Alaskan day



This is definately the place to go on an nice Alaskan summer day when you’re icthin’ to get out.
