Flour Lake is nearly 3-1/2 miles long and a 1/2 mile across at its widest. The lake offers great fishing for smallmouth bass, walleye, and northern pike. Shoreline fishing by boat or canoe is popular for catching smallmouth bass and walleye. Flour Lake reaches down to nearly 100 feet deep and the lake trout are often found near these holes.

- With over 70 km of ski trails that completely circle the lake, you can enjoy Flour Lake at any angle. These hiking trails are a great way to experience the surrounding wilderness and spot wildlife along the way.
- Honeymoon Bluff is located a 1/4 mile from the campground entrance. This hiking trail is not extremely long, but steep in areas and the overlook at the top is one you don’t want to miss. Looking out over Hungry Jack and West Bearskin Lakes—this is a great sunset hike and photo opportunity.
- Caribou Rock Trail is a moderate to difficult hike depending on how far you would like to travel it. A 3/4 mile “well-traveled” walk takes you to an overlook of West Bearskin Lake and another 1/4 mile you come to Moss Lake lookout. If you are up for a distance and a beautiful treat, continue for the additional 2.5 miles to the Stairway Portage where you will find a remote waterfall called Rose Falls. (Day permit required) Access from Cty. Rd. 65.
- There are many hiking opportunities in the surrounding area. Many hikes take you into the Boundary Waters in which you will need a self-issuing day permit. These can be found at some trailheads, otherwise Golden Eagle Lodge does have them available.
There are also trails for biking. These trails are advised for the advanced mountain biker for they consist of rugged logging roads and trails. Note—spring and fall are best for biking these trails for they are not maintained.
The Boreal Forest is thick with its abundant wild berries. Found in many varieties along roadsides, in burned areas, and on trails—one can pick and feast of strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries to name a few. While out picking berries, observe the numerous wildflower species that accompany the fruits of the forest. This is a popular activity among those visiting the Flour Lake Campground.
With over two hundred species of birds, the Superior Nation Forest is a great place to start your birding experience. Ranging from the tiny hummingbirds to the towering bald eagles, this area is a birding delight. Relax at your campsite or hike on the nearby trails to catch a glimpse of the bird variety.
