   Big Muskellunge is an 897 acre lake with an average depth of 26 feet and clear water (14’ clarity). There are not many homes on the lake so there are 64 acres of water per owner and only 1.7 owners per mile of shoreline. It is quite rare that a home becomes available. The lake features a public beach and multiple public landings so it is very accessible to the public. So even if you don't live on the lake, it is a fun one to get out and explore if you are in the neighborhood. There is a lot of state land around the lake and access to the bike trail system is pretty easy. I have heard good things about the fishing on the lake.
