The Resort

About Us

The lush green of the boreal forest, the sparkling blue of our crystal clear lakes and the history of this natural environment park are matched with top quality tourism services and recreational facilities. Big Island Cove Resort is a family oriented resort with only 14 cabins and 27 campsites. This translates into "No Crowds" and enables you to relax, fish, swim or do just as you wish while enjoying the quiet nature that surrounds you.

In operation since the 1950's, Big Island Cove Resort is a well-established tourism facility. As you awake in the morning you may be greeted by a deer nibbling on the flora near you. The "call of the loons" will have lulled you to sleep the night before. It's not surprising though, and you'll come to enjoy the common site of wildlife around you. Bird lovers can delight with over 350 species of birds, which flock and nest about the lakes and forests. Otters frolic in the lake and beavers appear and disappear into their houses.

The secret to great vacations here is variety! Make it as active or as relaxing as you wish. Enjoy fishing, boating, water-skiing, swimming or just laying on the sandy beach soaking up the sun.

It's different for everyone. Come and experience it for yourself.

We look forward to meeting each new visitor and are eager to share this adventure with you!
