Big Lake is a large lake located to the north of the Sinkhole and directly east of the Land Bridge. It is a very large lake that forms part of the River and is one of the more dangerous places to build in the game.

When in water the player can't attack animals/enemies, open the inventory or survival guide, carry logs or log sled, or do practically anything besides swim. The player can however place blueprints underwater, provided they were selected from the survival guide prior to entering the water.
