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.

    • And that's the key...it takes a guy or two to step back from the max deal and take a pay cut to keep this type of talent together. In the NFL, the Patriots are a dynasty because Tom Brady is smart enough to take far less than he'd command on the open mark to stay put with a great coach and build weapons around him...he values rings (aka, his legacy) more than a few more dollars. If GS can do that, they will be relevant for a very long time.
    • nope it didnt!!!!!!!!!
    • IDK, people pick apart the Hanzal/White trade as a mistake, but I don't. I think it was totally worth the shot to make a solid push. Going in everyone who did any analysis knew the first round was going to be full of 2nd round talent so losing a 1st rounder this year wasn't giving up much. I also don't think Fletch should make a trade for the sake of making a trade either. That is a desperation move and not one fueled by focusing on getting the team better. I would be shocked if someone like Scandella isn't moved in order to make room from Granlund, Nino, etc. We are really tight now with the guys we want to keep and have a few holes to fill beyond that so something has to give.
    • Garretson Food Center..... $1.69/ pound You are exactly right.... And if you vacuum seal it with some of the drippings, this winter it will taste like it was fresh off the smoker!
    • The truth comes out!
    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.
