Bouder Lake is a 136 acre lake in Cook County, Minnesota which is tributary to the Poplar River.[1] Bouder Lake reaches a maximum depth of 17 feet.[1] Bouder is accessible through a navigable channel leading into Crescent Lake.[1] A fisheries survey turned up populations of walleye, muskellunge, smallmouth bass, yellow perch, and white suckers.[1] An aquatic plants survey found the lake to be home to several species of water marigolds, pondweed, bladderwort, water lily, burreed, sedges, and cattails.[2]

On older maps, Bouder Lake has been named as Boulder Lake, Reck Lake, and Rush Lake.[3]
