Description

Kawasachong is a smaller, shallow lake in the upper Kawishiwi River watershed. Roughly kidney shaped with a round bay off its northwest corner, its 129 acres have a maximum depth of only 11'. The Kawishiwi River enters Kawasachong in its southwestern quarter, exiting to the the northwest on a long and circuitous path to Polly. To the east a short stream runs in from long and narrow Stringer Lake.

Campsites

Kawasachong supports four designated campsites, all ranged along its eastern shore.

Planning Considerations

Kawasachong sits on the upper Kawishiwi River route, which runs north from the river's headwaters at Kawishiwi Lake through Square, Kawasachong, Townline, Polly, and Koma into Malberg. This is a popular and heavily traveled route into the interior lakes from the Sawbill entry. Expect to see other parties along the Kawishiwi here during the busier summer travel periods.

Wildlife

Kawasachong supports populations of Northern Pike (Esox lucius), Walleye (Stizostedion vitreum), Rock Bass (Ambloplites rupestris), White Sucker (Catostomus commersoni), and Yellow Perch (Perca flavescens).
