Campground Around Motley

4 posts in this topic

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.

    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.
