Aside from going to the Loon Lake Roller Rink along with traveling the road alongside Loon Lake en route to Big Bass Lake, I haven’t spent a whole lot of time thinking about this lake. I used to look out the open windows at the rink to catch a breather from skating and always thought I heard some sort of camp on the northeast shore? That was back in the 1950-1960’s.
I was even more amazed to read the history of Martin Johnson, founder of his camp on Big Bass Lake. He spent a whole summer at Loon Lake little realizing that Big Bass Lake was less than two stone throws away But then that short stretch between the two lakes was heavily wooded. I often wonder why he decided not to stay upon Loon Lake to build his eventual camp and why he then chose to move on to Big Bass Lake?
Are there any stories circulating around about Loon Lake that anyone would care to share by way of a comment?
