Birch Lake

Birch Lake Professional Review and Guide

"Birch Lake is an excellent lake to explore with a canoe or kayak. It winds through the rock outcrops and forests north of Babbitt. It stretches more than 20 miles and totals 7800 acres.

The 80-mile shoreline is jagged, with many bays and islands. Because of its serpentine shape, it is relatively well protected from strong winds. Fishing is good for walleyes, northern pike, smallmouth bass, and lake trout."
