Lac is a small, relatively shallow
lake in the South Brule drainage in the southeast corner of the BWCAW.
Some ¾ mile long, 80% of its 55 acres are under 15' deep, its maximum
depth only 20'. Lac Creek exits the lake at the far east end, dropping
into the South Brule River at Skidway.
An old portage of 30 rods, not shown on current maps, connects Lac with
Swan to the west but may no longer exist.
Lac is a small lake and supports no established
Lac is a spur on the South Brule route,
the 8½ miles of river and small lakes up from the Bower
Trout entry point to Brule Lake. Access
is limited, the choice being between an old portage which may no longer
exist, and a bushwhack up Lac Creek from Skidway.
Lac supports populations of Northern Pike
Notes and Comments
Lac Lake is another of those annoyingly redundant
placenames, lac being the French for lake.
