Scraggly Lake (Southern) and Pleasant Lake Professional Review and Guide

"The lake is only 3.5 miles long, but the highly varied shoreline extends nearly twenty miles along marshy coves and wild undeveloped islands. Wild and remote, this is the paddler’s ideal lake: too shallow for most motorboaters and far enough from road access that you have to do some work to get here.

Scraggly Lake is a wonderful place for wildlife. Wood ducks, loons, ring-necked ducks, deer, and a huge snapping turtle were among our other observations here. During a morning paddle from Scraggly up into Pleasant Lake, we watched a playful family of otters in the glass-smooth water. Though we did not happen to see moose while here, it appears to be superb moose habitat."
