Great Campground for kids of all ages

6 posts in this topic

Just back from 2 weeks camping trip with my three grandsons ages 10,13,and 15. We camped at Fisherman’s Point Camp ground in Hoyt Lakes Minnesota. Cannot say enough good things about this campground. Electric, hot showers, flush toilets, two fishing docks, two large boat landing areas, nice spacious campsites, lots of biking paths, two miles from town, and super nice camp ground hosts. Ten year old had never caught a fish and in two weeks of fishing he was hooked. Caught hundreds of large sunfish a day plus lots of large mouth bass and northern, walleyes and rock bass. Nice ATV trails we rode a couple days and in town behind the arena was a skate park that the kids loved to ride their bikes on. All in all it was a wonderful time and as I told one grandson time spending with your grandsons is priceless.

I looked at some pics of the lake and it looks like the shore is rocky. Don't like beaching the boat on the rocks. Are all the sites like that?

Just about every campsite has a nice safe area to land your boat on (No rocks). The pictures of the lake you seen must not have been in the area of Fisherman’s Point Camp ground. Do not know your situation but I suggest you go there you will like it.

    • better late than never!!  so far it's not to late any way!
    • I'm curious about the GenieJar.  Looks like there is a 30oz and a 17oz version.  I wonder how it works in fairly cold weather.  The nice thing about styrofoam is that it insulates against the entire water mass freezing into a minnow-sicle.  I wonder if they recommend throwing it inside your jacket or something. 
    • Agreed. I am getting nervous about the state of out financial situation now, well, I guess getting MORE nervous. Toward the back end of the contract Parise's deal isn't so bad since it was front loaded, but the term is so long. IMO we cannot afford any more buyouts. Pominville is such a buzzkill. Koivu has really played great the last 1 plus this year. No, he isn't going to win many races for the puck, but as long as he isn't on the top line I am OK with that. Staal is doing a little better than I had hoped I guess. I was hoping just for solid play, but there have been a few games where he and Coyle we so strong on the puck the opposition couldn't get control of it.
    • Hey Star, I wouldn't leave the fan there. It's going to get really HOT and will melt ! Move it to the bottom of the cabinet just left of the gas valve and have it blowing up so it pushes the heat out the vents on the top half of the heater.
    • I agree with the backing for the fly line.  Never had any problems and the stuff seems to get better with age.
    • Best thing I've found is backing for fly line.  It has no memory and virtually no knots.  It's better situated for rattle wheels because of the physical size of the backing but I've not had any problems yet with my Frabil tip-ups.  Deepest water we fish in is only 30' with normal depth of around 12'.  Our local Runnings sells 50 yard segments for like $3 each in any color. 
    • The next year my Mom and Dad cooked the turkey in one of those white roasters and it was awesome.  So I told her that too.  Big time.  It was nice and juicy too.
    • i believe it is their first year, one of the guys used to work for Ice Castle at the Pine River plant.  They have videos on you tube.  I have seen them on Facebook and you tube, the house looks nice, but it is not something I would buy.
