Glenmore is a rather small, very shallow lake at the head of Glenmore Creek in the Trout Lake basin, 26¼ miles southeast of Crane Lake and 15½ miles WNW of Ely. Less than ¾ miles in length, its 47 acres have a maximum depth of only 8'. At the western end of the lake, Glenmore Creek commences its 3½ mile course, southwest to Pine Lake.

Out of the northwest corner of Glenmore, a 195 rod, up-and-over portage strikes out for Western, gaining 20' of elevation in a moderate ascent, before dropping back 34' to the Western shore. At the opposite end of Glenmore, a 210 rod carry heads to the southeast in another up-and-over portage that climbs some 90' before dropping back 80' into Schlamn.

The Independence Day windstorms of 1999 did not significantly affect the Glenmore area, the nearest appreciable damage being farther to the north, beyond Western.


Glenmore supports a single established campsite, along the northern shore.

Planning Considerations

Glenmore is a link in the route from Buck southeast to Crab, passing through Western, Glenmore, Schlamn, Lunetta, and Little Crab.

Glenmore is included in Beymer, The Boundary Waters Canoe Area, vol. 1, The Western Region, routes 2, 4, and 12.
