A good RV Camping and kayak lake South of the Cities???

5 posts in this topic

Anyone out there have a good idea of a campground/resort on a fun little lake where we might catch a Walleye(or 2 )? We also have a Jeep in case we need to haul the kayaks to a lake close by. The area we are most interested in is something south or East or West of The Cities. Does not have to be fancy at all. but Power is a must. Thanks guys, Laurie

Take a look at http://www.dakotacounty.us for Dakota County Parks and Lake Byllesby Regional Park near Cannon Falls. They have lakeside camping/rv sites with hookups. You can Kayak and fish on the lake or on the nearby Cannon River. I know they used to catch walleye just below the dam located there.

Laurie check out Lake Hanska County park Campground. It sounds pretty nice and its on a part of the lake that has a nice bay to get away from the motors.

Lake Hanska is about 1/2 hr west of Mankato.

Also I read you are in east Bloomington, - where abouts ? that is where I grew up. I live in Eagan now.

The Waterville area has a campground near a few lakes and the Cannon River.

There are a lot of good places along lake Pepin too. That can be a great 'lake' to kayak and the campsites are pretty good too.

    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
