The Brule River is a river of the U.S. state of Minnesota. The Brule River originates at Vista Lake in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness and flows 40.4 miles (65.0 km)[1] east and southeast, terminating at Lake Superior approximately 14 mi (23 km) northeast of Grand Marais, Minnesota, within the boundaries of Judge C. R. Magney State Park.[2][3] A major tributary is the South Brule River, which rises at the east end of Brule Lake in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.
