Big Cove Resort is one of the landmarks in the history of Lake Almanor. Originally built in the 1960's and purchased in 1980 by by brothers Paul and Gary Casella. Our goal was to build on the tradition while continuing to improve and enhance our services at Lake Almanor.
The bonds of friendship that have formed with patrons who return every year, have created an atmoshpere of a unique community.
Whether it is sharing the lake experiences such as boating, water-skiing, wave running, fishing or golfing at nearby golf courses, our patrons truly enjoy their "fun in the sun". Restaurants in walking distance range from cafes to pizza parlors to fine dining establishments available for lunch &/or dinner. Other summer events include an old-fashioned 4th of July parade with art shows, logging contests, food and great fun for all ages. A 4th of July fireworks spectacular on the lake is breathtaking for all to behold.
Our patrons can look forward to the Fish For A Wish Tournament Benefitting the Make A Wish Foundation. Always the 1st Saturday in August. In 2013 over $70,000 was made through cash and inkind donations. You can see more on www.fishforawish.org. Annual get-togethers such as "Dancing Under the Stars" featuring live entertainment to be enjoyed by all. Our yearly "pot-luck" picnic barbecue for our patrons, which has been enhanced to include
a wine-tasting party, is always a favorite. All proceeds go to the Make A Wish Foundation
For the Casella's it is about family, friends and sharing in the beauty and splendor of the world at Lake Almanor, with dependable service and a commitment to excellence.
