This lake is a pretty 532 acre lake featuring a shoreline of 81 miles. Good endeavors here include boating and fishing. Ramps are offered for placing your boat in the lake. The waters of this lake include some great trout, cutthroat trout, salmon, apache trout and brook trout.
This lake is one of the great places here in the Mogollon Rim Mountains. Naturally, kayak paddling is cool but treacherous; check the latest conditions before you
go. Big Lake Dam is picturesque and it's right next door to Big Lake, and the skiing at Sunrise Park is splendid. After a long day outdoors Best Western Sunrise Inn is a good place to spend a night or two.
