I am wondering if any one has stayed there, and what there thoughts are?

We are thinking about heading up int that direction for a long weekend, and Jay Cooke is booked.

Other recomendations are welcome?

My sister has stayed there in the past. She had good things to say about it. Its not a bad option when Jay Cooke is full.

I would imagine it, like most campgrounds, fills up every weekend as well. Any one know or have a feel for that? We'd like to do the Duluth area in the summer/fall too.

There is also the Fond Du Lac Campground that is right next to Jay Cooke. It is right on the St. Louis River. If you do a search for Fond Du Lac Campground Duluth, their HSOforum should come up. If you are bringing a boat you can dock it right at the campground. There is also Indian Point Campground that is on the river near Spirit Mountain.

We stayed at spirit mountain last October with the trailer. It is a nice place, clean rest rooms and showers, nice people etc. Nice wooded sites with shade etc. We would go back again.

We are staying at Jay Cooke this fall though...

Another option in that area is the Buffalo House Campground. They are a full service operation with campground, resturant and bar. Clean and well run operation.

WE stayed there last fall, if you walk across the road from the campground, you can look from the top of the ski hill over the harbor, awesome views. Campgound was nice and clean, wooded sites. We would stay again.

A follow up from last weekend.

We spent 3 nights at Spirit Mountain, Saturday - Monday nights.

The campground was full Saturday night, and really very quiet.

Sunday / Monday night was 25% full or so. The bathrooms were clean and nice.

The spots are wooded, some spots are pretty small, others are very spacious. some spots are flat, others the fire ring might only be able to put chairs 1/2 way around.

You can't beat the convience, gas/propane/goodies 1 mile away, the harbor a 10 minute drive away.

We would go back.

    • This is great... I barely finished my '17 Yetti and now its already outdated.
    •   I'm on my second copy, the binding is not very good and before you know it pages begin to fall out, but as far as explaining technique, meat handling safety, use of curing salts and spices I think the book is a great resource.  I've given several copies to friends.  As far as the recipes, they are somewhat standard, but the same can be said for many other sausage books or online sources. I seem to make personal changes (like increasing garlic and black pepper) to most sausage recipes plus I sample a pattie to access the seasonings and will adjust if needed. I do think the amount of added fat is a little heavy handed for me, I find ground pork butt to perfect for me.  I prefer to make my own seasoning mix, and use very fresh spices... We order 3 times a year from spice companies to keep everything fresh, I only buy spices from the grocery store in an emergency, there is no guarantee of their freshness. 
    •   Auu, great plan. Oh by the way. Those aren't nails sticking through the roof sheeting is it? You may find a Shishkabob bird some morning if they get to running each other around in there!
    •   Auu, since it's not a Faith based discussion it should be pretty easy for you both to use humanist science facts to come to the same conclusion and agreement. Carry on!  
    • If our politicians were serious about reducing the cost of healthcare  they would be addressing the big pharma companies.   Check this out: http://wendellpotter.com/2016/03/the-lobbyist-who-made-you-pay-more-at-the-drugstore/    In my simple view of the world all that would be needed is a law passed saying the pharmaceutical companies could not charge more than 10% for the same drugs as is being charged by the next highest countries cost.  That would save Trillions over a 10 year period ( Caveat, I made that number up, but you get the idea )

    • In this depth range I still use the DT10. Unless the weeds are growing up quite a bit. If they are then I will use the DT6. 
    • the complete ridge line of the roof is a vent.
