Getting Here

If it was easy to get here, it wouldn't be Big Creek. An epic adventure from the get-go, the middle of nowhere is a pretty fitting way to put it. Luckily, we can provide you some direction, whether you drive or fly in.

We wanted to spread the word on meal times again so we're all on the same page.

Breakfast is served 7:30 am to 10 am, we do take walk ins.

Lunch we serve between 12pm and 1pm, we have switched that back to reservation required. It does not need to be a 48 hour reservation, but an advance notice for lunch is required.

Dinner is 48 hour reservation required only.

For any meal reservation please email

Look forward to seeing you all! We appreciate your business.

Here is another road update sent in to us within the last week.

"We went in via Warm Lake - Landmark - YP - Profile Creek - Big Creek. This route is good as far as The Red Metal Mine Road Intersection with the Profile Creek Road. From that point to the Big Culvert (aka the intersection with the old road to the Cleveland Mine) the road has solid snow cover as of 5/31/21, From the Big Culvert to Edwardsburg (aka Big Creek) the road is mostly clear of snow. Rubber tired ATVs have made the trip over Profile Gap to Big Creek last weekend. Based on our past experience on tired ATVs, travel by tired ATVs is easiest in the early morning while the snow is stiffest, and lower tire pressure helps a lot. But it is soo easy on tracks we don't do that any more.

The portion of the trip from the Red Metal Mine Road intersection to Belvedere Creek (about 1 mile south of Jacob Ladder Flat) has not been cleared of trees wide enough to pass full sized vehicles."
