Big Lake Campsite 1
Similar to the other campsite on the south point of this island, this campsite has this large exposed table rock that provides easy access to a lot of shoreline.

Big Lake Campsite 2
Southwest view. More of the table rock. Notice how shallow the water is.

Big Lake Campsite 3
Log picnic table and a massive fireplace. Lots of space around the fire pit to roam and spread out.

Big Lake Campsite 4
Another more modern picnic table is also at this campsite. This one is easier to move around. This campsite is not in the BWCA. This campsite on Big Lake is available first come first serve. You don't need a permit. A campsite like this is often used by groups so they can get an early start on their permit entry date or position themselves for an easy exit the next morning. You can pick up a BWCA permit the day before your official entry date.
