BWCA Lake and Stream Directory

Lake, river and creek names shown in parentheses [i.e., (Thelma) Creek] are not official names. There are about 2,000 lakes in the BWCA, of which about half of them are connected by maintained portages. Lakes that are in BWCA Primitive Management Areas (PMA) have (PMA) next to them and have their own directory too (see BWCA PMA Lakes). Lakes with a (remote) next to them are not in PMA's, but do not have a portage to them either (you must bushwhack). See this page (BWCA Remote Lakes).
