Lake Monroe Camping

1 post in this topic


I am going to be coming to Lake Monroe on July 15th to camp for a week and just wondering if anyone can help me out with some information on the camping side. I fished Monroe back in 2001 for CUSA so I know the lake a little. My camping questions are:

1. Is Paynetown the only area which has electricity?

2. Can you get a site away from the crowds in a tent?

3. Is there a boat ramp close so I can put boat in and drive truck back to camping area?

4. How about bait shops in the area?

5. Can you park your vehicle at the camping site? I have seen a map where it looks like you have to park in only certain areas of the campground and I like my vehicle to be with me at the camp site.

Thanks in advance for help with these questions. BTW, I will be fishing for crappie/walleye. How has the bite been? The crappie bite back in 2001 was fantastic!

    • O.T.C. - Have whoever hunts there every year go to court and obtain a harassment restraining order against the guy. It's clearly harassing behavior, and the court will probably issue the order. Given the fact that he is shooting onto your land while hunters are sitting out there in the trees, you might be able to obtain an order for protection against him. If he violates the OFP, the cops can arrest him. This might be the best way to get law enforcement involved. The judge has the power to fashion the order so he can do his target shooting outside the deer hunting season. The judge can even order that the guy not possess firearms.
    • Always been a spring bobber guy but did fish last year with a noodle style rod and was impressed.  Recommendations for $50 and under?
    • They are fricken scared to death. Obama's a troll, Hillary is a got dam assassin. She has 25 yrs of pent up grudges........and it's payback time.
    • Can you actually read anything and parse out content on your own or are you lmited to  getting all your information from chain emails?  At times it looks like you are actually trying and then you throw out a gem like this.
    • This is getting us back on Hillary being crooked.
    • How is a post about a Republicans view on media bias against Trump getting us back on the subject of Hillary Clinton being crooked?         
    • I personally would like to see a one deer per hunter per year policy. No party hunting. You kill one = your done. State wide. Each hunter gets a "deer license" similar to how they do it in the western states. Archery season starts in September and runs through the ends of October. Then a 1-week break. Followed by a 2 week rifle season, a 2-week break, and finishing up with a 2-week muzzle loader season in December. Your "deer" tag gets you into all 3-seasons. But you only get 1-deer.    The reason your idea won't work was stated, by you, earlier. You want to hold out for a 3.5year old buck, but you are willing to shoot a 2.5year old with your bow. You can't have it both ways. Kill him young and he won't get old.    MN has multiple problems. And one of the biggest is the "I get to" "I want to" mentality if it's hunters. I want to shoot the biggest deer of my life every year. And I should get to shoot two of them. This isn't reality TV or a hunting show.
