Enjoy the beauty of Big Lake from the water!
Big Lake offers beautiful beaches, parks and recreation but not everyone has a way to get "out on the water" or throughout the parks to cover large areas of ground! FLOATERS gives everyone equal chance to get wet and soak up the sun with a leisurely paddle in a Kayak or on a Paddleboard, you can even hit the lake for a few hours of fishing from a tailor made fishing kayak. Not interested in watersports? We have tandem bikes that can get you around the paved paths and sidewalks in the parks or to some of our great Big Lake amenities like ice cream, burgers, beer or shopping.
Rentals are by the hour but can be rented for 1/2 or full days- what better way to take in the scenery of what gave our town its name?
Just to note- Big Lake Beach has a $5 parking fee for a single vehicle- this fee helps keep our beach and parks beautiful!

Life Jackets

Life Jackets come complimentary with every rental. The safety of our guests is a top priority! We have adult sizes- in two varieties- and several child sizes available. Child sizes are limited so if your youngster has their own life jacket, we recommend bringing it to ensure the best fit.
