Snusbox Lake

Fungus Lake PMA

Snus is the Swedish word for snuff. There are a lot of people of Swedish heritage in Minnesota. Snuff is powdered tobacco that is snorted up the nostril.

Snusbox Lake drains to the south into the Perent River.

This area was scorched by the 2011 Pagami Creek Fire that burned much of the southwestern part of the BWCA and was the largest fire in recorded history at about 100,000 acres (almost 10% of the entire BWCA).

There was a large fire in this area around 1863-1864. This fire is known as the North Kawishiwi River/Alice Lake/Cypress Lake/Saganaga Lake Complex. This burn began south of the current BWCAW's southern boundary near the town of Isabella, Minnesota.

Approach to Snusbox Lake

In order to get to Snusbox Lake, paddle northeast up the creek, starting from where it flows into the Perent River.

Bushwhack to Snusbox Lake

Paddle about 100 rods up the creek to Snusbox Lake. Most of this creek should be easy to navigate in a canoe. It is a swampy creek, so trying it early in the year will make it easier.

Exploring Snusbox Lake

Another small unnamed lake is accessible to the northwest of Snusbox Lake by following the tiny creek flowing into the northern bay on Snusbox Lake.
