Welcome to the Big Basswood Lake Association

    Our mission is to preserve and protect the quality and natural beauty of Big Basswood Lake and its watershed: leading the lake community in making sound choices towards sustainable solutions.

    Beautiful Big Basswood Lake (a.k.a. Wakwekobi Lake) is located on the north shore of Lake Huron in Ontario, Canada (roughly 46°19' 83°22'30'), in close proximity to the communities of Thessalon, Thessalon First Nation, Little Rapids, Iron Bridge and Wharncliff. The closest commercial airport is located in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario (YAM), with daily flights servicing Toronto, Sudbury, Thunder Bay, and points beyond.

    The Big Basswood Lake Association (BBLA) is a community-led organization whose membership is open to lake residents, friends, neighbors, visitors, and all who share a common love and appreciation for the pristine beauty of Big Basswood Lake and its surrounding wilderness. Our goal is to ensure the preservation of this unique natural resource in perpetuity for future generations.
