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.

    • which models of striker bibs/ coat?
    • That little doe is a sweetheart. Reminds me why I gave up hunting. But I did it for more than six decades from MN to MT to AK and Canada. Before somebody jumps in with a snide  comment, I don't care if YOU do it but it is just not for me any more. Carry on. Nice pix....couple nice looking bucks.

    • I agree; stay away from the extended warranty.  If my dealership (Village Chevrolet) won't honor the original warranty, what makes you think they will honor an extended warranty?  This problem was discovered well before my warranty ran out and they still treated me like an ugly sister...

    • You two must be elitist walleye guys. 
    • I can't say I'm much in agreement with Gary Johnson on this issue and I can admit it. I will say however that it makes more sense than the deal Pence struck with Carrier.   1. The carrier deal handed away state money while still being a net LOSS of jobs in that state. Johnson's program enticed new business into his state and resulted in a net GAIN of jobs and probably tourism dollars as well.  2. I think these types of deals should be handled as locally as possible. It's called representative government. Maybe it makes sense in the New Mexico deal that it be handled at the state level since it probably effects the state as a whole at least to some degree but I don't know. The Indiana deal should have been handled locally, especially if any of the tax cuts promised were property taxes. Those benefit communities at a more local level and the jobs saved benefit communities at a more local level. The state government possibly should not be handling these things but the Federal Government most assuredly should not be involved in these deals.  3. I'm pretty sure that the threat of interference with federal contracts had much more to do with the Carrier deal anyway so why did they give Carrier any tax breaks? I thought Trump was a tough guy and a strong armer? In the New Mexico deal, tax cuts are about the only leverage someone would have to bring that extra revenue and jobs into the state.   I'll say it again, I'm really not in favor of the government picking winners and losers. I do think the Pence deal is something that happens every day but the only difference is it happens at a local level and you don't have a blow hard President-elect taking credit for it normally. Time will tell whether it was a good deal or if the rest of the manufacturing community will hold the Government for ransom now like every professional sports franchise does these days.    Gary Johnson is in favor of replacing the current Tax code with a 'Fair Tax" system.
