Hub is a moderate sized and somewhat isolated lake, anchoring the connection between the Frost River country in the north, and the Louse River route to the south. Hub Creek flows out of the northeastern corner of the lake, through a series of ponds and lowland bog, to Fente on the Frost. A 339 rod portage, just over a mile in length, more directly connects Hub to the Frost. To the south, a 105 rod portage connects with Mesaba, and beyond to Sawbill/Alton.


Hub has three campsites, one each on the northern, eastern, and western shores. Hub is not an easy lake to get to and so on most occasions you will have your pick of sites.

Planning Considerations

Hub provides the only north/south route over a large expanse of the South Central BWCA and so in spite of the long portages (two of more than a mile in length between Alton and the Frost) it is a route worthy of consideration. It is also a principle approach to the upper end of the Louse watershed.
