Big Rock Creek is a historic venue for families and friends to come for good old-fashioned fun, not just to see but to experience and feel the beautiful and unique environment. Purchased around 1914 by a group of businessmen (including the likes of Horace “Gokey” Thompson, Allan Siems, and Claude Siems), Big Rock Creek Trout Farm held Trout Farm license #10 in the state of Wisconsin. The trout living in Big Rock Creek supply many of the streams that are so popular out west! The upper echelons of America who built the US railroads, started the oil companies, and defined the separate states, came together and stayed here to getaway and be surrounded by other elite leaders. 

The scenic property offers an extraordinary panoramic view of gorgeous countryside and boasts trout ponds, a lake and creek, a lotus pond which is well worth the hike to see the water lilies, woods, and many trails. Expect a plethora of wildlife including, deer, black bear, trumpeter swans, Sandhill cranes, mallards, and much more. Take a walk to the stable where you can feed and pet the famous Maggie, who is the friendly Scottish Highlander cow that has become a hot commodity for visitors. 

Experience nostalgia on the 200-year-old timbers that were used to build The Lyon. Originally it was a traditional barn, one of the largest barns in western Wisconsin at the time it was built. The timbers are made up from old railroad ties and trestles, and they have stamps on them indicating where they came from. Today it is no longer a traditional barn but instead used for many events. Nowadays, The Lyon, in reference to the train station, Gare De Lyon, has come to be the main attraction for all Big Rock Creek visitors. 

The majestic 1000-acre property is Just 5 minutes north of beautiful St Croix Falls, WI and 45 minutes from The Twin Cities, northeast to the scenic St Croix River. Many guests have visited to enjoy the property for a family vacation or reunion, retreats, fishing and hunting excursions, parties, holiday festivals, and many have declared their love for one another and embark on their “happily ever after” celebrating their wedding and beautiful reception. BRC is proud of their positive standing reputation and returning guests- creating a community that feels like family. For more information visit www.bigrockcreekwi.com
