Activities

Big Canoe is a private, gated, planned community designed to maximize the natural beauty of the land in a residential and resort community. Big Canoe allows the timeshare owners and guests to use their amenities at the same rate as Big Canoe residents and offers weekly packages at greatly reduced fees.

 

We strive to have an atmosphere of warmth, hospitality, tolerance and respect. We presume the same from you! We consider this a privilege to use Big Canoe’s first-class amenities, and along with that privilege comes the price that must be shared in order to keep these facilities maintained.

Lakes

Is there swimming allowed in the lakes? Yes, only at the beach area on Lake Disharoon. Lake Disharoon is designated for seasonal swimming and recreational use only. The three lakes at Big Canoe are Lake Petit, Lake Sconti and Lake Disharoon. Closest to Petit Crest Villas is Lake Petit. Lake Sconti provides the backdrop for the Clubhouse.

Fitness Center

Is the Fitness Center open year round? Yes, a modern “state of the art” fitness facility, indoor racquetball/squash court, indoor pool, sauna and whirlpool. Fitness classes of all types are available to our guests. Various massage therapies are offered, including hot stone treatments.

Marina & Boat Rentals

Can I fish off the docks at the Marina? No, fishing is permitted only in designated areas on the dam and spillway. Tucked in a cove on the shore of Lake Petit, the Marina offers rentals of pontoon boats, canoes and Jon boats. There is no boat ramp for launching available.

Swimming

Is there a towel service at the pools or do I need to bring my own? Please bring your own towels, as no towel service is provided.

The Outdoor Pool Venues are open seasonally during the summer only. The Swim Club offers Lake Disharoon for swimming, canoes, paddleboats, a sandy beach, and the Rock Slide (a two-tier slide that is the spillway for the lake.) A nice in-ground, outdoor swimming pool sits beside the beach.

Hiking Trails and Parks

Can we bring our bicycles? We do not encourage you to bring bikes because of the mountainous terrain within the resort. With over 20 miles of hiking trails and various parks throughout Big Canoe, your outdoor exercise program can stay at its best or get off to a great start!
