Lower George Lake

Gunflint Ranger District

Another skinny lake (basically a wide spot along the river) similar to Rib Lake, only smaller. The shoreline of Lower George Lake is lowland. The lake has two major tributaries, George Creek in the northeast part of the lake and what may still be called the Cross River flowing into the south end of the lake.

There is no fishing information on this lake, but with all the moving water, would imagine is stays oxygenated through the winter.

There are no campsites on this lake.

Highly recommend a paddle up George Creek. It is a dead end route, but probably not often visited as most paddlers who just pass through Lower George Lake on their way to other destinations.
