Tuscarora Lake Area

Overlay #7 in the BWCA

There are three entry points in this area, all in close proximity to each other. These are Cross Bay Lake (on the Cross River) Entry Point 50, Missing Link Lake Entry Point 51 and Brant Lake Entry Point 52. Both entry points 50 and 51 are from Round Lake.

There are several large destination lakes in this part of the BWCA. They are Gillis Lake, Tuscarora Lake, Long Island Lake, Gabimichigami Lake, Little Saganaga Lake, Sea Gull Lake and a few others. These large lakes are connected together by many small lakes. The Hairy Lake Primitive Management Area (PMA) lies just to the east of Tuscarora Lake and south of Missing Link Lake.

Lake trout is king in this part of the BWCA and the fish are very prevalent in many of the lakes in this area. The lakes tend to be clear and very deep.

Much of this area was heavily impacted by the 2006 Cavity Lake Fire from Gabimichigami Lake over toward the Round Lake area. In 2007 the Ham Lake Fire scorched the area due east of the Cavity Lake Fire. The area burned by these two fires is joined. While new forest growth has sprung up, it will be many years before this part of the BWCA recovers from that fire.
