This is a great place to do some fishing, hiking, biking, canoeing, kayaking and sailing. It is located on the south side of Lake Independence, with a stream and Lake Superior nearby. It's a great get away for fall color hiking tours, snowshoeing, ice fishing and cross country skiing.
Big Bay is one of the prime recreational areas of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. In the winter, we have heavy lake effect snow, but the lake also warms the air around us allowing us to play in the snow without the bitter cold temperatures of other places.
In the summer, we enjoy the cooling lake breezes while the rest of the world suffers from the heat. Come join us.
