About Divide Lake Campground & Backcountry Sites

The Divide Lake Campground provides a northwoods camping experience in a small (only 3 sites) secluded campground located near many recreational opportunities.  A walk-down canoe launch provides access to Divide Lake and its stocked trout population while Divide Lake Trail provides a 2 mile hike with benches and scenic overlooks.  Other nearby lakes, a boat ramp, and a fishing pier give the camper even more chances to enjoy the outdoors.  Of particular interest is the fact that FR 172 in this area is on the Laurentian Divide with waters on the Divide Lake side flowing to Lake Superior and those on the Tanner Lake side flowing north to Hudson’s Bay.

Divide Lake Campground is located east of Isabella on Forest Road 172. From MN 61 at Illgen City, turn north on MN 1.  Drive approximately 23 miles to Isabella. At Isabella, MN 1 takes a sharp left.  Instead of following MN 1, turn right onto Forest Road 172. Follow  FR 172 for 4 1/4 miles to Divide Lake.  The campground is on the right.

Quiet rarely used

This is a very quiet, rarely used campsite. We canoed over to it which makes it feel more remote than it actually is. Had a lot of luck fishing for trout as well!

First to Review

Extremely Quite! I Highly recommend its an amazing trout Lake.
