Big Chief Boat Launch

Do you have a boat?

If so you can use the public launch at Big Chief Landing.

It's free. Parking is also free, just not over night. Big Chief Landing is just off Main Street, just across Big Chief Drive from Sears. Want to clean your boat afterward? There's a coin-op wash with vacuums a block away, at Legendary and Main.

Another option is Tom Finley Park, across the bridge toward Seven Points on the left.

Learn the lake with a guide

A half day or full day with a guide is a great way to learn the lake, as well as techniques for finding and catching fish. You can find local guide services here.
