Entry Point 62 - Clearwater Lake

Gunflint Ranger District

From Grand Marais, Minnesota, follow the Gunflint Trail for about 28 miles to Clearwater Lake Road (Country Road 66). Take a right and drive 5.1 miles on the gravel road. Continue on this road to its very end at the Clearwater Lake landing.

The U.S. Forest Service offers the Flour Lake Campground if you need a place to sleep the night before your travels. Also, Clearwater Historic Lodge and Canoe Outfitters is located here at about 4 miles up the road from the Gunflint Trail.

From Clearwater Lake, there are portages to Mountain Lake, Caribou Lake and West Pike Lake.

This entry point parking lot abuts private property.

From the entry point landing, paddle east into the BWCA. Motorboats are allowed on Clearwater Lake, but they are relatively uncommon.
