Quiet, clean, and beautiful.

We really, really enjoyed our time at Flour Lake. Our campsite was particularly secluded, which was lovely. The lake itself is full of smallmouth, and has a nice little hiking trail along the shore that takes you to nearby Golden Eagle Lodge, where you can rent watercraft, take a shower (for a…

About This Campground

Overview

Flour Lake Campground provides a convenient home base for exploring the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW). Its scenery, amenities and access to outdoor recreation areas make it a popular campground for canoeing, kayaking, boating, and fishing.

Superior National Forest, located in northeastern Minnesota's Arrowhead Region, is comprised of 3 million acres. The forest spans 150 miles along the United States-Canada border. Visitors can find recreation opportunities year-round, including travel in the famed Boundary Waters.

Recreation

The eastern edge of Flour Lake has two separate portages for entering the BWCAW, thus this campground attracts canoe and kayak enthusiasts. Portages link Flour Lake with East Bearskin Lake and Moon Lake. Flour Lake also provides great fishing for bass, walleye and lake trout.

Entering the BWCAW requires a permit. Day use permits are available at no charge; inquire at the campground host site. View recreation guides and maps of hiking trails and canoe routes in the national forest.

The half-mile Honeymoon Bluff Trail begins a short walk up the road from the campground and offers a great vista of Hungry Jack Lake. Many additional hiking, mountain biking and cross-country ski trails are nearby.

Facilities

Flour Lake Campground has private sites, each containing a picnic table and campfire ring with grill, and several have views of the lake. Some are reservable, while others are first-come, first-served. Large RVs are easily accommodated.

The campground has accessible vault toilets, a solar-powered drinking water system, trash and recycling facilities and a public boat ramp. A fee dump station is nearby.

Natural Features

The campground sits on the quiet shore of 352-acre Flour Lake in a stand of mixed hardwoods and pine. The lake features several shallow bays that are frequented by a variety of wildlife, including moose, beavers, bald eagles, ducks, loons, songbirds and bears.

Nearby Attractions

Golden Eagle Lodge, the lake concessionaire, offers many other services and conveniences as well as watercraft rental, coin-operated showers and approved firewood.

By far, the most popular nearby attraction is the BWCAW, with over 1,200 miles of canoe routes, 12 hiking trails and over 2,000 designated campsites.
