Don't move firewood!

Don't move firewood!Due to the potential of carrying harmful tree pests and diseases, Wisconsin has restrictions for moving firewood.

Firewood is available for sale at Big Bay State Park.

Family campground

There are 15 sites that have electrical hookups. Showers and flush toilets are centrally located in the campground. Pet owners are reminded that pets must be on a leash no longer than 8 feet and attended to at all times while visiting the park.

Seven sites are walk-in sites, these sites are about 100 to 400 feet from the parking area depending on the site.

Campers must set up camping units (tent or screenhouse), on the designated tent pad. Wheeled campers and vehicles must be parked on the campsite driveway/spur road. Please help us to preserve the campsites for others to use!

Outdoor group camps

Big Bay State Park has two outdoor group camps. The group sites are about a half mile from the regular campground and have a modest view of Lake Superior. Sites have their own hand pump and vault toilet.
