Bunggee Lake

Sundial Lake PMA

There is no information on this lake. If anyone has been here, they aren't talking about it. Maybe it's because the fishing is so good?

Have not been able to ascertain the origin of the word Bunggee. It definitely has nothing to do with bungee jumping.

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.


Approach to Bunggee Lake

The "easiest" approach to Bunggee Lake is from the south starting at the north end of Thunder Lake.


Bushwhack to Bunggee Lake

Seems that the least taxing route out to Bunggee Lake would be pond hopping beginning at the small bay on the west shoreline just below the north tip of Thunder Lake. Traverse to small ponds and then enter a larger pond. From the larger pond, a very small creek winds its way through the forest towards the northeast. Following this tiny creek for about 60 rods will lead you to another narrow pond oriented north-south. Paddle to the north end of this pond (assuming there is enough water to paddle). At the north end of the pond, you are less than a football field away from Bunggee Lake. Head northwest and bushwhack the rest of the way.


Exploring Bunggee Lake

There is "nada" information available on this out of the way lake.
