  • Lac La Croix
  • Crane Lake
  • Little Vermilion Lake
  • Loon Lake
  • Pauness Lakes
  • Shell Lake

  • Oyster Lake
  • Nina Moose Lake

Rivers On Map:

Entry Points:

In general, the majority of visitors to portions of the BWCAW shown on Map 1 will stick to the edges , either staying along the border lakes, including Little Vermilion Lake, Loon Lake and Lac La Croix; or will tend to stay on the more southern routes through the Pauness Lakes, Shell Lake, Lynx lake, Oyster Lake, and down into Nina Moose Lake. More isolation, as well as more difficult travel, will be found in the smaller lakes just south of Lac La Croix.

Caution should be exercised when crossing the largest lakes of Map 1 in a canoe. In particular, the big open stretches of Lac La Croix can develop large waves that are difficult or hazardous to navigate in a canoe. Early morning is often the best time to cross these big areas. In addition to paddling, limited hiking opportunities are available in this area.

The back of all Voyageur maps contains a large, detailed finder map including a thorough index of Boundary Waters lakes. In addition, information about navigation in the Boundary Waters, safety, rules & regulations, basic entry point information, hiking opportunities, winter activities, fishing, and sources for further information is provided.

The overview map is a great asset for trip planning, but has been simplified to an extent that it is not suitable for navigation. In addition, campsite locations are not as carefully reviewed as those shown on the detailed fronts of each Voyageur map.
