Lanesboro Area

6 posts in this topic

Looking for some advice on a campground around Lanesboro. Preferably close to the Root River but not necessary and I will be tent camping. Thanks.

Forestville Mystery Cave Park is like a 20 minute drive away. Otherwise there are a bunch of campgrounds in the area with flush toilets and fire rings right on the bike trail. Highway 250 or the Old Barn spring to mind.

Have a good trip. The nice part of that part of the state is other than the flood waters there really aren't too many pools of slack water for mosquitoes.

There is one just south and east of lanesboro maybe 2 miles. Its right on the Root, and has a bike/walking path nearby. The sites aren't great though. Literally zero privacy. They have nice cabins there though.

The Old Barn is right on the Root River. They rent out canoes and tubes. Also have a pool. Bike path runs right by the campground. We've stayed there twice, and I don't make a habit out of staying places with no lake.

I've been to Eagle Cliff a number of times. I thought it was pretty nice. Clean, quiet and right on the river. The people running it are pretty strict about how fast you drive, which is good, in my opinion and also pretty strict about when to keep the noise down. Party crowds might not want to go here but folks with kids would probably like it.

    • Here is hoping for a dry October.
    • I didn't get the elm creek park hunt this year   I guess I will sit right outside the park and hope they chase them out again.
    • I am not one to post on here much but I am always "Lurking in the shadows". Anyway I have a question about a Grand Prix I bought a few years ago. When I first acquired the car it would up shift into the next gear as soon as you stepped on it fairly hard making for a rather uneventful and slow accelerating process. I figured this was normal as it was the only thing I found unusual. Then after awhile it begin to shake subtly when accelerating in first and second gear after second gear it would accelerate flawlessly. in the last few months it has begun to develop a fairly bad jerk when stopping and then going again. This ONLY happens after driving long distances. It never happens if I drive under 100 miles .Also it only happens about 1/3 of the time after driving these long distances. It will still accelerate slowly until about 3 mph and then it will jerk fairly hard when it does happen. Any Ideas what would cause this? The long distance thing is what confuses me.
    • What a load of dung question.  In your eyes no one could respond with a "rational" explanation. Johnson knew what it was going to take to get into the debates when he decided to run.  He failed up to this point so suck it up. Maybe you and Dave can get together and drown your tears together over a couple cold ones.
    • Do you have any rational explanation why a candidate who is on the ballot in all 50 states, and has a petition to be included in the debates with over 1 million signatures on it, should not be in the debates? https://www.johnsonweld.com/debate?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=tweet&utm_term=GJ-09-23&utm_campaign=debate
    • This was Sunday morning after we set decoys. Maybe the duck dock is to comfortable......
    • Sweety, son and I are both-In. Will try and hold out for a buck but no Deer in the freezer so if it's Brown its Down!
    • I may have missed it when I dozed off in the middle of the "debate", but I don't believe there was any mention of Aleppo in the whole affair...    
    • Del drops the mic.   Nice dodge.   How would Del know what Trump and Clinton are thinking or are afraid of (if they are afraid of anything)?
