For many North Star Lake is a favorite. It is a 1,052 acre lake and reaches depths of up to 97 feet. North Star Lake is spring-fed which makes it clean and north star lake mapclear. You can see 16 feet down! The lake has many bays and points so you can boat even on the windy days. The underwater structure is great for fishing!

Most of North Star Lake’s 15 miles of shoreline is undeveloped and part of the Chippewa National Forest — you won’t see cabin after cabin here. You will really feel like you’re one with nature. The wildlife on the lake is unbelievable: loons, eagles, deer, song birds, beaver…

You will see multiple nesting pairs of loons. Because there are so many bays, they call to each other from all around you. Did you know that our county, Itasca County, has the highest population of eagles? Keep your eye on the sky for the soaring Eagles. If you are quiet enough, you might see a deer taking a drink along the shore.

North Star Lake is a perfect sized lake. There is plenty of room to both fish and enjoy other water activities.

When you check-in, ask us for a map of the lake that has helpful hints on where to start fishing or talk to us and we can tell you where the fish are biting.
