Picnic tables at Big Pine Picnic Area

One of the most beautiful places along the Lake Superior shoreline is Big Pine Picnic Area.  With ample parking this is a delightful place to spend a beautiful day with friends and family.

Nestled among giant red and white pine trees, there are tables, grills, and benches to view the spectacular sunsets over the greatest body of fresh water in the world.  Long, sandy, beautiful beaches are a favorite to sand castle builders and swimmers.

Watch for huge tankers and freighters plying the waters of Lake Superior on their way to and from the locks at Sault Sainte Marie.  Another favorite pastime is to walk the beach looking for agates.  There is an enormous variety of beautiful stones and water polished rocks, much to the delight of amateur rock collectors and children of all ages.  Enjoy your day at Big Pine Picnic Area.  May it be a day you will long remember.
