Hassel Lake
Scale 1:21420
Full image approximately 2 miles square


Hassel is a small, relatively shallow lake in the Lunetta Creek drainage of the Little Indian Sioux, 28¾ miles southeast of Crane Lake and 12½ miles WNW of Ely. At the far north end of the lake is the source of Hassel Creek, which flows north, nearly a mile, to Lunetta.

The Independence Day windstorms of 1999 did not affect the immediate Hassel area, short of knocking down much of the timber on the hilltop off the northwestern shore.


Hassel supports one established campsite, along the northeastern shore.

Planning Considerations

Hassel is part of a group of small, interconnected lakes clustered near the southern boundary of the BWCAW, just to the southwest of Crab. Other lakes in the group are Battle, Boulder, Clark, Glimmer, Meat, Phantom, Saca, and Sprite.
