Glimmer Lake
Scale 1:21420
Full image approximately 2 miles square


Glimmer is a small, relatively shallow lake in the Clark Creek drainage of the Vermilion basin, 30 miles southeast of Crane Lake and 11¾ miles northwest of Ely. Only a quarter mile across, Glimmer sits just to the north of, and some 28' above, the northern shore of Clark. While the maps show no portage, the presence of a campsite on Glimmer, coupled with its close proximity to Clark, suggest that a short, steep, trail may be found there.

Though Glimmer itself was not damaged by the 4th of July storms of 1999, the area south toward the BWCAW border did suffer tree loss estimated in the 10% to 33% range.


Glimmer supports a single established campsite, along its southeastern shore.

Planning Considerations

Glimmer is part of a group of small, interconnected lakes clustered near the southern boundary of the BWCAW, just to the southwest of Crab. Other lakes in the group are Battle, Boulder, Clark, Hassel, Meat, Phantom, Saca, and Sprite.
