   Big Muskellunge is a deep, clear lake with only a couple of homes on it. 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 trial system is pretty easy. I've heard good things about the fishing on the lake.
