Mudro Lake

Kawishiwi Ranger District

A deep lake with a single campsite. The lake does not contain lake trout. Mudro Lake's waters flow north into Fourtown Lake.

The three portages along the creek in the gorge between Mudro Lake and Fourtown Lake are very rocky. Sections of these portages, particularly the first and last 30 rod portage could be underwater during high water levels. There were many bald eagles here in springtime. There are some lovely views to be had along these portages.

The portage from Entry Point #23 is 30 rods long and nice and easy. It follows a small creek. The creek flows out of Pickett Lake into the west end of Mudro Lake. This creek is navigable during good water levels in a lightly loaded canoe; expect it to be harder to travel the creek than the portage though.
