Where are we going today?

Thinking of a family reunion, company picnic or birthday party? Big Lagoon has just the facilities to accommodate your event. The newly constructed restrooms at the Governor's Pavilion will make your visit even more enjoyable. These facilities are equipped with lighting and electrical power. In addition to our regular operating hours and fees, a late rental option is also available for a nominal cost. The large restroom and changing room at our East Beach day use area is also complete. This area has two medium size shelters available for rent. Youth sport team parties and birthday celebrations are common activities at these pavilions. I would like to thank all of our visitors for their patience and support during our rebuilding process. We are still working on one of our boardwalks and occasional closings are necessary during the weekday. Please call the park office for reservation availability and pricing

    Uncharacteristic of most state parks I've visited. My selected site was trashed with soda cans, foodware and wrappers. Shame on the pigs who couldn't clean up after themselves before they left. However, in the absence of good minded campers, the site (as should others I observed in like condition) should have been cleaned before the next guest arrived. To me, it would be like checking into a hotel room only to find an unmade bed, last night's dirty dinner dishes and wet towels strewn all over the floor. Not exactly something you want to pay money...Read More

    This park has a great campground the bathhouse was modern and clean some camping spots are a little small though. We enjoyed spot 12 close to bath house and a nice spot for a tent through the bushes made it feel a little more secluded from other campers.

    My family had our first camping trip together at Big Lagoon- The entire trip was amazing! We were planning our next trip on the way home! The camp hosts were great and the entire experience was wonderful!

    Big Lagoon State Recreation area is a great place to launch a kayak or paddleboard. They've got a nice launch near the observation tower.
