Jackid,

There are two public beaches, one on the south/west end of the lake and one in Dartford Bay near town called Hattie Sherwood park. If you're talking about swimming from your boat, tons of people anchor in the back end of Norwegian Bay to swim and party. 

There's a main boat launch in town at the marina (there's also a park there). Though if I remember correctly they might close it on the afternoon/evening of the Fourth because of the festivities in the park and the fireworks. There's another launch on the east end of the lake at sunset park and one on the south shore at Horner's Landing. There are others on the west end of the lake, but I don't typically head that way. 

Fishing wise, It's kinda hard to advise since I don't know the type of fishing you want to do. You can troll with artificial lures. Or drift with live bait, like leeches and minnows. Small mouth, northerns and walleye would be what to expect. Look for the weed beds, but typically 10 to 20 feet of water works. Malcolm bay and pigeon cove on the north shore are good spots along with the east shore of Norwegian Bay. There's also a shallow hump off the shore of the Heidel House that boats anchor around to fish. Gets to be a few feet deep but drops off into the teens and twenties on all sides. For large mouth bass, work the docks and shore casting with things like spinner baits. Or if you want, hire Norton's or Walker's charter service. They specialize in lake trout but will take you for whatever fish you like and you can learn the lake. The last suggestion on fishing info would be to go to the bait shop in town, North Bay. It's right by the marina boat launch and park I mentioned earlier. Ask for Joel. He can give you some tips.

Hope that's helpful.

My hubby and I want to head out to BGL next week but we aren't very familiar. I've been doing some research about the lake. I was wondering if anyone out here might give us some tips as far as fishing spots, the best boat landings on the lake, swimming spots and parks. Thanks so much in advanced for any info you can give!!!

It's on the north shore of the lake to the west of Dartford Bay. Basically it's from before the large  white boat house up to pigeon cove which is the cove area prior to the Baptist bell tower. You can Google a map if it helps. And I attached one.

Hit the big lake today and had a great time. Fished out from condo’s on south shore and got a couple of pike. Moved to I think horse shoe hump straight north in front of Hiedl House. Ten walleye one big crappie two big white bass pike and Rockies. Moved to bay west of  baptist camp and caught about a hundred Rockies. All on small spinners and all still swimming.
