Discover Siseebakwet (Sugar) Lake in Minnesota

Crown Jewel of the Northland: “Ziinzibaakwad”

DID YOU KNOW that Sugar Lake provides 26 FEET of water clarity? It is literally one of the cleanest, clearest lakes in all of Minnesota.

The high concentration of calcium carbonate in the water offers natural protection from acid rain, has been rumored to provide healing properties (Ojibwe tribes believed there was magic in the water), and produces that beautiful Caribbean/aquamarine color. Honestly, someone once called us "The Mediterranean of the Midwest" and we simply can't let it go. Little Sugar, located just to the southwest of the main lake by small stream access, is less colorful but FULL of fish!
