About Big Lake

Big Lake is 3,591 acres located in the Chippewa National Forest, 12 miles east of Bemidji, MN. The lake has 10’ 5” water clarity and has all types of bottom, including good offshore humps, drop offs, weeds and cabbage. Take a boat from your lakeside resort to catch everything from muskie to bluegills on Big Lake. The quiet bay areas west of the island make for good fishing no matter what Mother Nature has in store.
