The United States Congress designated the Big Island Lake Wilderness in 1987 and it now has a total of 5,300 acres. All of this wilderness is located in Michigan and is managed by the Forest Service. Twenty-three lakes, ranging in size from 5 to 149 acres and joined by short, marked portages, make this Wilderness an excellent waterway for canoeists. Logged off between 1890 and the early 1930s, the region has many old stumps scattered among second-growth hardwoods (maple, white birch, beech, and quaking aspen) in the uplands, and hemlock, spruce, and balsam in the low wetlands along streams and bogs. Although the terrain rolls easily, there are no trails within the forest, and hikers may find the going a challenge.
