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


Kroft is a very small, rather shallow lake near the eastern boundary of the BWCAW in the South Brule River watershed, its 22 acres reaching a maximum depth of but 12'. It sits perched at the eastern end of the Misquah Hills, which rise some 100' on all sides, and almost 200' above Fiddle Creek which drains the area.

An 80 rod portage drops 6' out of Kroft's southeastern end down to Ram and Forest Road 152 beyond. A 55 rod carry out of the southwest end leads Rum, and beyond to Little Trout and Misquah on the route north to Vista.


Kroft is a very small lake and supports no established campsites.

Planning Considerations

Kroft Lake is one of several lakes on the Ram/Vista route over the Misquah Hills.
