Big River Regional Park

With two campgrounds, a nearby grass-green golf course, restaurants, gas stations and other amenities within blocks, the Big River Regional Park is a one-stop camping destination.

Cowan Lake Campground, located at the end of Main Street in Big River, offers picturesque views of the lake and wide open spaces to accommodate any size of camper. Boat launching is free of charge. Electric and non-serviced sites available. Cowan Lake has great walleye, northern pike and perch fishing, and there are ball diamonds, playgrounds and sand areas nearby. Many towns are near to water, but Big River is the only place where you can fish from a dock on Main Street!

The Community Center campground is on the north side of Big River and has modern services with full service sites and non-serviced sites. There are also coin operated showers, laundry facilities, ball diamonds, horseshoe and sand pit. The large sites with mature trees bring a little of the quiet serenity to camping in town.
