Campground Around Motley

Recommended Posts

Any suggestions for a public campground around Motley? There are quite a few private ones, but it seems the going rate is around $45/night, which is way more than I want to spend for a tent spot.

Has anyone ever stayed at Rock Lake Campground in the Pillsbury State Forest?

How about Dower Lake Recreational Area in Staples?

Thanks!

Several years ago I drove through the Rock Lake campground and it looked pretty nice. Some large pine trees to camp under. I have not stayed there however, I know somebody who does and he likes it.

Sounds like it would worth a shot. Always fun to a little exploring.

We stayed at Rock Lake a couple years ago. We had an OK site and the place was full. Only thing I really remember is that someone sunk a couple picnic tables in deep water at the beach and I could stand and have my head out of the water. There were a few bigger boats on the lake but I think they were tubing more than fishing.

There used to be a KOA on Fishtrap but it has gone through a couple ownerships and the overnight cost has gone way up. My inlaws used to have a spot just down the road and we would go up there to shower.

  • Your Responses - Share & Have Fun :)

    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!     
    • Males were on the beds last night on a lake here in the metro. Not my deal, so I let 'em be. Which means I didn't catch much at all compared to last week.   Oh well, be a couple weeks before the summer patterns start happening. Already a hint of cottonwood floating on the water though. *booooo*
    • I would agree with Purple.   Just add an inexpensive unit of your choice for the maps.   You could even use a cheap tablet with the navionics app on it for the mapping, if money was an issue.     You can buy a 7 inch generic (RCA) tablet for around 50 bucks.    A few bucks more gets a holder.
