Bunggee Creek

Sundial Lake PMA

This is a creek that runs north from Bunggee Lake to Saturday Bay on Crooked Lake.

The known fires in this region were the 1894 fires (possibly two of them) that are known as the Oriniack/Sioux River/Lac La Croix/Crooked Lake complex and the Chad/Cummings/Lac La Croix/Crooked Lake complex. In 1875 the Mule Creek/Sterling Lake/Sunday Lake/Crooked Lake complex burned much of the area. Eleven years prior to that, in 1864, the Little Indian Sioux River/Lac La Croix/Crooked Lake complex burned here. The oldest fire known to affect the area occurred in 1822 and is referred to as the Hook Lake/Hegman Lake/Crooked Lake complex.


Paddling Bunggee Creek

From the south end of the western half of Saturday Bay, paddlers can find Bunggee Creek flowing in from the south. This creek can be followed all the way to Bunggee Lake, but you won't be sitting in your canoe much. Only short sections of the creek are actually floatable. The best use of this creek for those trying to reach Bunggee Lake, is helping you stay on the proper course. Short sections of the creek pass through areas where the forest comes right down to the creeks banks. These sections will be tough bushwhacking. However, most of the creek passes through peat bog which allows for good visibility and fair walking.
