Armour Lake

   Armour Lake is one of my favorite lakes for many reasons. It is a nice quiet lake with deep, very clear water, a beautiful shoreline that makes it great for kayaking, rowing, etc. and ,while technically a public lake, it is hard to get access too. You have to come in the stream from Crab Lake and that takes a little work and isn't going to happen with a motor boat. While Armour Lake is a ways away from things like grocery stores and hospitals, there are some good places to grab a bite to eat nearby. The lake has a lot of large parcels on it which helps add to the peaceful vibe.
