About Us

We are the Mike and Linda Thomas family, owners of the Big Lake Campground. As our daughter wrote for a school assignment, "It's a friendly little campground that's right across the road from Lake Michigan. The campground is a very comfortable, lovable place." We like to think that it's big enough to provide the services you need and small enough to make you feel at home.


Reservations are encouraged but not always necessary. We will, when possible, accommodate you with your preferred site selection. Big Lake Campground is owner-occupied year round. It is never too early in the pre-season or too late mid-summer to call in your reservation.


Fishing for Salmon or Trout can be challenging and rewarding as many record fish have been landed from Lake Michigan waters. Fishing information can be obtained daily from our office.

Charter Fishing

Charter fishing arrangements are available. If possible, inform us of your request upon making your camping reservation.


Golfing enthusiasts are only minutes away from a nine hole course which also offers mini golf, or an eighteen hole course just fifteen minutes away. We would gladly schedule your tee time.
