Big Creek Lake functions as a drinking water source. The Lake was closed when Giant Salvinia, an invasive species, was discovered at alarmingly high levels in June 2021. We maintained water quality while battling the invasion.

The Lake is open on a provisional basis. We will constantly monitor conditions at the Lake to determine feasibility.

NO CASH.  You must use a credit or debit card at our kiosk. Fees are $10 to launch your boat and $1 to fish from the bank. There is no charge for use during June 2022.

Invasive species of any kind are expensive to combat. You MUST wash your boat before launch. Violators face the possibility of losing privileges at the Lake.

Help be our eyes at the Lake. Report sightings of patches of weeds or snails. Contact us; if you witness someone not adhering to the new guidelines, call (251) 694-3165.

Friday, Saturday, and Sunday - 6:00 a.m. until dusk.
