Botany of the pike Bay Summer Camp of the Ames Foresters
The summer camp of the Foresters of Iowa State College for 1925 was located on Pike Bay, which is a large bay of Cass Lake. There are many lakes in the region, of which the most important is Cass Lake, named after Governor Cass. Of the other lakes, mention may be made of Big Lake, Rice Lake, Grace Lake, Lake Andrusia, Wolf Lake, Moss Lake, Twin Lakes, and Lake Thirteen. They are all of glacial origin. The Mississippi River empties into wolf Lake, thence into Lake Andrusia and leaves Cass Lake at its northeasterly end.
