Rapture Lake

Mugwump Lake PMA

A fairly high hill lies just south of Rapture Lake. The summit of this hill is 1,850 feet high.

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.

Exploring Rapture Lake

A tall hill lies just south of Rapture Lake that may (or may not) make this lake scenically interesting (depending on if it is visible above the tree line). You will have to visit to find out.
