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


Princess is a small, relatively shallow lake on Princess Creek in the Little Indian Sioux drainage, 27 miles southeast of Crane Lake and 13¾ miles WNW of Ely. Not much more than ¼ mile in length and relatively narrow, Princess sits on the boggy high ground to the north of Schlamn Creek. Princess Creek enters the lake at its north end, from the marshy expanse beyond, and exits at the south end, passing through a large pond before dropping steeply, some 40', into the Schlamn Creek bottoms.


Princess is not on any maintained canoe routes and supports no established campsites.

Planning Considerations

Princess is on the way to nowhere, and not particularly accessible, though it might make an interesting overland hike for parties camped on nearby Lunetta. Getting to Princess by canoe seems rather pointless.


Notes and Comments

If you do get in to Princess send us some photos. We'll publish them here. (It's the only way most BWCA paddlers will get to see this lake.)
