Why this place is special
Encompassing all of Blue Lake, this property has a clear water lake with an uncommon marl deposit and fen along the eastern shoreline that forms the headwaters of Armstrong Creek. The lake is surrounded by a mixture of northern hardwood and boreal woods. Enormous old growth white pine trees dot the landscape, providing excellent vantage points for nesting eagles that reside here. Common loons have been spotted in recent years on the lake, a testament to its health and a contributing factor for the lake’s protection. The Ojibwa call this Spirit Lake and camped here into the 1950s along their route to Chicagon Lake burial grounds.
