Big Lake State Park is a state park located in northwest Missouri, United States. The 407-acre (165 ha) park was established in 1932 at the northern end of the state's largest oxbow lake, Big Lake. Park activities include boating, camping, picnicking, fishing, and swimming.
Accommodations in the park have been destroyed by various Missouri River floods. In 2016, the park became the first in the state to offer rental cabins that are still on wheels and could be moved in case of a flood.
