Its a nice lake but needs a boat to roam around it. There are several renting space and you can rent one to enjoy this beautiful lake properly.

Our entire family of 12 individuals rented a houseboat with Voyagaire Lodge and Houseboats on Crane Lake. We spent three nights on the boat and had four fantastic days cruising in Voyageurs National Park. The scenery was fantastic and the weather perfect. Voyagaire staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, and the boat was in excellent shape. We all loved this... More
