Map of Lake Andrusia


...the awesome sunrises in the early mornings or the glimmering moonlight shining across the waters at night. You will appreciate the quiet and peaceful setting along the 8.5 miles of mainly undeveloped shoreline within the heart of the Chippewa National Forest.

Out on the lake...

...you will find yourself watching the eagles soaring above you and swooping down into the lake in their own display of fishing. You will not only hear the call of the loons but view their beauty. Meander down the riverway to continue your view of nature and fishing adventure into the quiet crappie and bass holes found in Anderson Lake, out into Wolf Lake or up into the great waters of Cass and beyond.
