Full image approximately 2 miles square


Pipe is a moderate sized lake up the Vern River, in the Temperance River drainage. Nearly 2 miles from end to end, half its 300 acres are less than 15' deep, with a maximum lake depth of 33'. At its eastern end, two single digit portages lead to East Pipe and the Vern River country beyond.


Pipe supports three established campsites, all in the western end.

Planning Considerations

Pipe is basically a spur route; a dead end. For the hardy, however, there is Pipe Creek, originating at Tobacco Lake, just beyond the west end of Pipe, and running west to Kelly Lake on the Temperance River. A trifling 2½ mile bushwhack that loses nearly 100' of elevation along the way.


Pipe supports populations of Northern Pike (Esox lucius), Walleye (Stizostedion vitreum), White Sucker (Catostomus commersoni), and Yellow Perch (Perca flavescens).

Notes and Comments

Pipe Lake is a part of a name cluster which, in addition to Pipe Creek, East Pipe, and West Pipe, includes Tobacco and Stem lakes.
