Weeny Lake

Weeny Lake PMA

Weeny Lake seems to have a fitting name. It is small in area "weeny"; about the size of Hag Lake. It is also pretty easy to reach since a small creek, that is mostly navigable in high water, flows between the east end of Hustler Lake and Weeny Lake. The Sioux-Hustler Trail (SHT) passes over the little creek leading into Weeny Lake. The creek is also just north of the fairly long 240 rod portage that connects Hustler Lake and Oyster Lake. There is even a campsite here which would make a good base camp for those planning a visit to Weeny.

This area of the BWCA has escaped fire for a long time. The most recent fire was in 1755. That fire is known as the Big Moose, Oyster and Lac La Croix complex. Another fire affected the area in 1681.



Approach to Weeny Lake

You arrive at the creek leading to Weeny Lake from Hustler Lake. One could also begin travel on the creek from the Sioux-Hustler Trail which crosses paths with the 240 rod portage between Hustler Lake and Oyster Lake.


Bushwhack to Weeny Lake

It is about 60 rods from Hustler Lake to Weeny Lake along a small creek that connects them. This creek is probably mostly navigable during high water. During droughts though, this bushwhack could become substantially more difficult. Also the Sioux-Hustler Trail crosses this tiny creek and could be used coming directly from Oyster Lake.


Exploring Weeny Lake

There is little information on this namesake lake of the Weeny Lake Primitive Management Area. A peat bog extends into the forest from the north end of the lake. Weeny Lake is a dead end, but should have some reasonably firm shoreline areas where one seeking a little extra solitude could set up a tent.
