Doe Lake

Gunflint Ranger District

This is a small lake accessible from Karl Lake. You can continue on to Fawn Lake from Doe Lake.

The channel between Karl Lake and Doe Lake can be blocked to varying degrees by beaver activity. You may be able to paddle mostly through, but you might have to do a beaver dam liftover.

There is no fishing data on the Minnesota DNR website for this lake. However since the channel between Doe Lake and Karl Lake is easily passible for fish, there should be something swimming in this lake. The lake is certainly more than 10 feet deep but have no depth data beyond that.

There are no campsites on this lake.

Fawn Lake drains into Doe Lake and that in turn drains into Karl Lake.
