Nice place to go fishing.
There are bunches of Small Mouth Bass and Lake Trout as well as Walleye. All of them are so delicious. Afford a fish license ! And go for it!

This lake has it all, enter into the BWCAW from here. Good fishing, resorts to stay at, like Trail Center Lodge, with bed/breakfest places and camp grounds with in the area. public landing to the lake with large parking lot.

We entered the BWCAW from here, and its a beautiful lake. Because of its very irregular shape and many islands, its hard to find the Lizz portage, but you'll get there eventually!

thank goodness this was the last stop on our trip. we (rented from an outfitter) kayaked this gorgeous lake for two days. It is oddly shaped with about 20 islands, creating beautiful nooks and crannies and vistas every which way you look. We saw a few canoeists and although the lake allows motors, it was quiet and peaceful during our stay.

beautiful lake and loon song is all I ask from a vacation. They have canoes to rent as well as a pontoon boat.

If you go, stay at the Norwester cabins!

My wife and I did a two week tour of several cities in Minnesota, including Grand Marais, Duluth & Hibbing. We were up there to escape the Florida heat and didn't really know what we were going to do, but turned out to have a really great vacation. Please see my other posts regarding lodging, meals, etc. if you are interested in a similar trip.

We spent a few days at the Poplar Creek B&B. Perfect area to hike, mountain bike, canoe, snow shoe, XC ski, etc. Just get up there and explore.
