Din Lake

Hairy Lake PMA

Din Lake is easy to access from either Sora Lake or Mass Lake depending on which direction you are coming from. A long bay of Din Lake stretching to the northeast leads the way to Tame Lake. Is there an historical relationship between Din Lake and a Don Lake in this PMA?

A large 1875 fire that likely ignited somewhere near Lake Insula and the Hog Lake area. The fire is known as the Alice Lake/Ogishkemuncie Lake/Tuscarora Lake/Cherokee Lake Complex.

One of the huge 1863-64 fires, namely the North Kawishiwi River/Alice Lake/Cypress Lake/Saganaga Lake Complex, ravaged this area. This fire likely started near the town of Isabella, Minnesota.

This fire started within what is now the Hairy Lake Primitive Management Area. The ignition point was probably somewhere between Mass Lake and Auk Lake. This fire, which took place in 1846, is called the Auk Lake/Long Island Lake/Cross Bay Lake Complex.

Way back in 1727, the Gordon Lake/Brule Lake/Winchell Lake Complex burned this area. It probably began somewhere near Sawbill Lake.


Approach to Din Lake

From Sora Lake: Follow the creek that connects Din Lake to Sora Lake. This creek can be found on the very south end of Sora Lake.

From Mass Lake: Access is a mere liftover from Mass Lake.


Bushwhack to Din Lake

From Sora Lake: Follow a creek from the south end of Sora Lake for about 10 rods to Din Lake.

From Mass Lake: You may be able to paddle between the two lakes. There may be a liftover (beaver dam or other blockage) though.


Exploring Din Lake

There is an odd looking rocky formation (like a jumble of boulders) just to the west of Din Lake. Head west about 10 rods into the forest from the very western most point of Din Lake's shoreline to see what is there. Tame Lake can be accessed from Din Lake, quite easily, from the northeast tip of Din Lake.
