Darlet Lake

Mugwump Lake PMA

The lakes name is another, lesser used form of the word "darling". Darlet Lake lies to the east of the slightly smaller Bewon Lake. The waters from Darlet Lake drain into Bewon Lake through a small creek that connects the two bodies of water. The name 'Bewon' may be a term of endearment in another language, but not sure yet.

In 1875, a large fire complex called the Alice Lake/Ogishkemuncie Lake/Tuscarora Lake/Cherokee Lake Complex burned the area around all those major lakes. It probably started near Lake Insula or the Hog Lake area.

There was another large fire in this area around 1863-1864. This fire is known as the North Kawishiwi River/Alice Lake/Cypress Lake/Saganaga Lake Complex. Like the fire that burned this area in 1875, it began south of the current BWCAW's southern boundary.


Approach to Darlet Lake

Follow the small creek that flows into the northeast corner of Bewon Lake from Darlet Lake. Make sure you pick the correct creek. There is another larger stream that flows due north towards Van Lake that lies just north of the creek leading to Darlet Lake.


Bushwhack to Darlet Lake

The entire bushwhack out to Darlet Lake is about 60 rods. For the first 30 rods, follow the creek generally east. Along this stretch the creek is closely surrounded by forest. When the creek exits the forest, just start following the forest line towards the southeast keeping the trees on your right. You should soon be able to see the sparkle of Darlet Lake in the distance.


Exploring Darlet Lake

Darlet Lake is sort of a slightly bigger version of Bewon Lake. There are no routes beyond Darlet Lake.
