History of Spooner Point
Spooner Point was donated to Big Lake Campmeeting Association in 1982 by Dr. Saunders Spooner of Providence, Rhode Island, in memory of his beloved daughter Jeanne Spooner Keogh. Dr. Spooner gave the land for Big Lake Campmeeting to use for charitable and religious purposes including recreational activities. We honor the wishes of Dr. Spooner and the memory of Jeanne Spooner Keogh by allowing all persons to use, recreate, relax and enjoy Gods' beauty on this peaceful point.
