Hungry Jack Lake

Gunflint Ranger District

Hungry Jack Lake is not in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area, but it is often used by paddlers who are lodging on this lake and then making their way into the BWCA.

Hungry Jack Canoe Outfitters and Cabins is located on the south shore of this lake. The Hungry Jack Lodge and Campground can be found on the north shore of the lake, accessible from Hungry Jack Road.

Logging occurred on Hungry Jack Lake predominantly in the 1920's and 1930's. This area was worked by the General Logging Company. Access was provided by spurs being built into the area by the existing Alger-Smith Company railroad (Heinselman).
