      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Big Bog State Park Campground???

Recommended Posts

Hey All! Been visiting the Waskish/URL area since the early 90's and for something different am considering taking my two daughters (8&11) camping at Big Bog S.P. would like to know if you guys can answer some questions as the MN DNR HSOforum is really lacking info/pictures...

#1 Can anyone tell me if there are docks for boats on the Tamarack?

#2 Which Campsite would you recommend? Are the sites very close together? Proximity to water is important.

#3 How is the beach? Sandy and shallow/good for younger kids as I suspect?

#4 Are there better/other camping options that have lake access other than Big Bog that you recommend.

As Always Thanks in advance!!! grin

We were at Big Bog last summer. We rented one of the camping cabins but my inlaws had one of the campsites on the river. It was like the 2nd one in on the right side of the road. The fishing off the dock in the river was much better than the fishing in the lake. There are docks or if you have a smaller boat you can pull it right up on shore. The sites are plenty far apart and each has a fire pit and a picnic table. Never used the beach but it is sandy and shallow for a long ways out can get really wavy in the wind though. Take a drive to the North section and walk the Bog walk it is really interesting. Do not let the Horse Flies in the lot scare you away they are only in the lot not on the walk. Bring the bug dope the park lives up to the Bog title. They just remodeled the bath house and fish cleaning area both are very nice and they keep them clean.
