Scale 1:21420
Full image approximately 2 miles square


Missing Link is a small, three corner lake, just inside the BWCAW. Only 41 acres in area, it has a maximum depth of 25'. A 142 rod portage out of the northwest corner runs down to the Round Lake landing. Out of the northeast a 45 rod portage, not shown on all maps, leads up to tiny Mavis while a 150 rod carry connects with Snipe to the southeast. Out of the southern corner a long 366 rod haul takes off to the south and west to Tuscarora.


Missing Link supports three established campsites, one in the northwest corner near the portage to Round, and two along the western shore of the south end.

Planning Considerations

Missing Link, BWCAW Entry Point #51, along with its neighbor Snipe, provides a connection between the two popular entry points at Round Lake and Ham. They also provide the access to Tuscarora from the east.


Missing Link supports populations of Brook Trout (Salvelinus fontinalis) and White Sucker (Catostomus commersoni), the former stocked in 1993 and 1995.
