Big Bog State Park Campground???

4 posts in this topic

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.

Beautiful camp ground. Not much for tree cover but still a place I'd recommend.

    • Are we comparing Teddy to Carr ? Is Carr good ? OK, simmering down fine keep Theodore for a backup because in 3 years when he's finally ready maybe again, Bradford might be down. People are assuming Ted can come back from this he nearly needed an amputation from what the training staff did saved his leg or was that report false ? I think the next Louisville guy might be a franchise QB. Ted needs to fill out in a hurry, maybe this down time will put some weight on him. I look at it this way in most sports. Is Teddy making the guys around him better or is it the other way. Either way we're 3-0 and I've forgotten Teddy just like everyone else has, no one is shedding a tear that Ted is sidelined, beat Rodgers and Newton back to back, feeling blessed Teddy wasn't out there tossing a flailed left handed pass to nobody.  
    • I just finished this drawing last week. This particular piece is going to be printed on shirts.  
    • Some great smallmouth bass and crappie action as I kayak fish in Northern Michigan  
    • In this video I'm in my kayak on a lake in Northern Michigan fishing for crappies and bluegills in late September.  
    • No you don't deserve better.   Trent Reznor ( nine inch nails) had it right    
    • Yep for most in the group it was our first real trip out West, next trip will probably be mule deer, tag soup on elk hurts a lot more with how pricey those tags are.
    • I am planning to be there as well.
    • I also use the zman original chatterbait. I am a chatterbait nut. Probably one of my favorite baits to throw. The strike king pure poisons are great too but swim a little lower in the water column than the zmans. My biggest fish the past few years have usually come on a chatterbait in the spring and fall. Early spring and late fall I will use mostly a chartreuse/white chatterbait with a white super fluke as a trailer. Very subtle action on the fluke, which I love in the colder water periods. Once the water starts warming up a bite I will switch to a lake fork tackle live magic shad. I'll throw mostly the zmans candy craw with a green pumpkin lake fork magic shad. I fish these over the top and through weeds in the spring and fall and rip them if they get caught in the weeds. They also work great around docks and skipping them under docks. A few weeks ago I wish fishing a dirty lake with a great dock bite and caught about 18-19lbs off of chatterbaits by fishing them around docks and skipping them under docks.
