Sugar (Siseebakwet) Lake is a 1,200-acre lake to the west of Pokegama Lake and about eleven miles southwest of Grand Rapids, in Itasca County, Minnesota. The Ojibway word siseebakwet means sugar and the tribe used the lake as a camping ground, extracting sap from the abundant sugar maples in the area as well as fishing in the lake and hunting in the nearby forests. Today vacation homes, rental cottages, and resorts occupy its shores. Sugar Lake is known for being one of the clearest lakes in Minnesota with water clarity to a depth of 26 feet. The high level of calcium carbonate in the water gives the lake its beautiful color, which many people compare to the waters of the Caribbean.
