Camping within 2 hours where I can wet a line from the campsite

10 posts in this topic

A group of 6-8 buddies of mine are getting together soon to do some camping. I am looking for a spot where we can camp and maybe let a line out for a few fish during the day. My first instinct was the st. croix but initial looks make it appear a little more complicated that I am looking for. I really don't want to boat in anywhere. Maybe I am dreaming but I thought I would ask.

Not picky on what type of fish.

Thanks!

Interstate State Park on the St. Croix at St. Croix Falls shouldn't cause too much trouble. Also William O'Brian State Park aways south of Interstate.

You didn't mention bringing any alcohol but I thought I'd point out that alcohol consumption is not allowed in State Parks. Hate to see you and your group run into trouble if you were to bring some beer.

I am actually going to try and get a riverside spot at Hidden Valley campground on the cannon. I really am just looking to have a line in the water while I cook and hang out. Thanks for the tips everyone.

Anyone ever visit Island Campground and Marina in the Red Wing area? What is it like there?

Drove over to Hidden Valley on Friday afternoon and it was wet, and packed. I ended up driving over to Island Marina and Campground in Red Wing and staying there for the weekend. It was very clean and a great location. Staff was very curtious and nice. Fellow campers were also very nice.

Is St.Croix busy on the weekends in the summer? I'm thinking about heading there friday instead of North Star lake by Grand Rapids. Stay a bit closer to home this trip.

    •   Not only that, but the boy they're hitching their wagon to ( Nunes ) said this;   Snip. "But he also re-stated his belief that Obama did not order the wiretapping of Trump Tower"  
    •   Those are great names from the kids. They seem to know where they will end up in the end! Instead of sweety, cuddles, lovey........  Lol
    • For something different and a little less expensive you could consider a Texas hog hunt.
    • red wings are back, sand hill cranes calling  all kinds of Robins nice
    • Not nails but worse, they are self tappers from the metal roofing:)  Sorry, I need to take the angle grinder out there and zip those off this weekend.  Funny you bring up the name kabob, that is actually the name of one of them if they don't produce:)   Here is a short list of the names my kids came up with:   - Kabob - Soup - Nugget - Fried - Drummie - Pot Pie   I cant remember the others but you get the point...    
    •   I agree that in the long run, the very best thing that could be done is to completely repeal the ACA and then continue to reduce government involvement. The problem with that is this is a messed caused by government that would become a disaster at least short term for some folks if it were immediately repealed. At this point, government created the mess so it has an obligation to fix it with as little damage as possible to the people.
