Big River Regional Park is composed of two campgrounds.
Cowan Lake Campground, located at the end of Main Street in Big River offers picturesque views of the lake and wide open spaces to accommodate any size of camper. Boat launching is free of charge.
The Community Center campground is on the north side of Big River and has modern services with full service sites and non-serviced sites. There are also coin operated showers, laundry facilities, ball diamonds, horseshoe and sand pit. The large sites with mature trees bring a little of the quiet serenity to camping in town.
Big River offers restaurants, gas stations/convenience stores, grocery store, garages, banks, beauty salon, golf course, a library located in our Community Hall all within five blocks of the Community Campground park. Also available in Big River is our Hospital, Ambulance and RCMP.
Park / Area History
Started as a mill town, Big River was originally owned by a lumber company. The Big River Regional park was opened in 1978 by a group of dedicated individuals with land leased from the town and the rural municipality of Big River. The site was the old mill yard so there was lots of wood chips. Come check out how it turned out!
Barrier Free Access
We are wheelchair accessible at both Cowan Lake and the Community Campground.
