4,700 acres of great fishing and water sports!


Fishing on the Lake
Big Pine Lake is a moderately clear water lake located in southwestern Aitkin County and is part of the Mille Lacs watershed. There is a state owned public access located on the south side of the lake. Big Pine Lake has a variety of habitats available to the angler from open, wind swept gravel and rock to areas of heavy vegetation. Shorelines vary from areas with gentle slopes and shallow depths to areas with sharp drop-offs and deep water. Mid-lake areas consist primarily of deep water, but there are several gravel bars with steep sides that rise to within a few feet of the surface.

Gamefish species available to anglers include walleye, northern pike, black crappie, bluegill and both largemouth and smallmouth bass. With the possible exception of the smallmouth bass, all of these species are native to the lake.


Play-Time on the Lake
The beach at the Cabin at Big Pine Lake is PERFECT for swimming. It is level, sandy and weed free! Kids can fish for sunny’s right off of your private dock (lift is also included if you are bringing a boat). The cabin is loacted in a bay-area which provides a perfect setting for some water skiing, water-tubing, kyaking or out-on-the-lake activities. There is garage storage for tackle & toys.
