"A quaint little drinking village with a fishing problem." We are located on the west end of Lake Independence. Enjoy fishing, hiking, trail riding all year round. Whether fishing by boat or ice fishing, trail riding by bike, 4 wheeling or snow mobiling. Beautiful hiking trails with water falls and running rivers and creeks. Within walking distance to down town Big Bay, where you can have lunch and dinner at the Thunder Bay Inn or just down the street at the world famous Lumber Jack Tavern.
