Flour Lake Campground

Flour Lake Campground sits on the quiet shore of Flour Lake.  The eastern edge of the lake defines the border of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.  Portages link Flour Lake with East Bearskin Lake and with Moon Lake, but be aware that if you enter the BWCAW, you will need a permit.  Day use permits are available at no charge, inquire at the campground host site.  Flour Lake provides great fishing for bass, walleye, and lake trout. The half mile Honeymoon Bluff Trail is just 1/4 mile up the road from the campground and offers a great vista of Hungry Jack Lake.
