Superior National Forest closes McDougal Lake Recreation Area

Superior National Forest closes McDougal Lake Recreation Area

due to Greenwood Fire

COOK COUNTY, MINNESOTA  ~~~~~~~  August 16, 2021  (LSNews)   The Superior National Forest is closing the McDougal Lake recreation area due to the Greenwood Fire. The Greenwood Fire was first detected on August 15, 2021 around 3 pm. It is located near Greenwood Lake and approximately 15 miles southwest of Isabella, Minn. It is rapidly growing and spreading due to high winds and dry vegetation and has the potential to impact structures and recreation assets. 

To ensure public safety of our visitors and employees, the forest is preemptively closing all developed recreation around McDougal Lake on the Tofte Ranger District. The area was cleared of all visitors today.  
Current sites impacted include: 

  •     McDougal Lake Campground 
  •     McDougal Lake Boat Ramp  
  •     McDougal Lake Picnic Area 
  •     McDougal Lake Trailhead and Trail (trail 71078) 

 
Reservations for McDougal Lake Campground have been cancelled and fully refunded through August 30. The affected areas will be shown as closed in recreation.gov. The forest will lift the closure when it is safe to do.  
This is a developing fire situation and this order may change as the fire grows or changes direction. 
A copy of the official closure order will be added to the forest’s alerts and warnings page. Please check the Superior National Forest website for closure information and Inciweb for the latest fire updates. You can also follow us on Twitter and Facebook at @SuperiorNF for the latest updates.
