Fawn Lake

Gunflint Ranger District

This is a small lake accessible from Doe Lake. The creek between Fawn Lake and Doe Lake is dammed up by beavers right where it flows out of Fawn Lake. Because of the beaver activity, you will have to bushwhack from Doe Lake. It is fairly open forest and not that difficult. You can stay next to the little creek between the two lakes to avoid getting lost in the woods. Staying to the right of the creek headed toward Fawn Lake seemed the easiest.

Fawn Lake appears to be quite shallow. When the beaver dam is in place, the lake probably has less wetland along its north shoreline; the dam probably has a big effect on water levels in this lake. No other obvious tributaries entering this lake.

The western edge of Fawn Lake straddles the boundary of the Hairy Lake Primitive Management Area.

There is a small unnamed pond about 350 feet due north of Fawn Lake.

Approach to Fawn Lake

You get to this lake by first crossing Doe Lake. Doe Lake is connected to Karl Lake by a short channel that is often blocked by a beaver dam which may require a liftover.

Bushwhack to Fawn Lake

Starting at the north end of Doe Lake, head to Fawn Lake keeping the creek between the two lakes to your left. The creek is totally impassable for a canoe.
