Eagle Lake

Tofte Ranger District

The only views of Eagle Lake are from long distance images taken from near the summit of Eagle Mountain. A string of three islands dot the largest bay of this lake.

There are several lakes that can be seen from the top of Eagle Mountain, namely: Eagle Lake, Shrike Lake and Zoo Lake. The North Branch Cascade River is also visible on a clear day. You may be able to see Crow Lake too.

Note: Cascade Lake is also visible from the Eagle Mountain summit area (out beyond Shrike Lake and Zoo Lake), but it is not within the Boundary Waters Canoe Area (BWCA).

There are no standard canoe routes into any of these lakes, so the best opportunity to see them is from the top of Eagle Mountain. To reach any of these lakes from ground level would require a substantial bushwhacking effort.

If you can make it to Eagle Lake, it contains northern pike and walleye according to the Minnesota DNR fish survey. These fish probably seldom see a lure...
