Clint Converse Campground...How is it?

4 posts in this topic

Hey Guys,

Any info on Clint Converse Campground's Group Camp?

It's located in Land O' Lakes forest on Lake Washburn. Planning a group camp with a few friends. I'm sure there are nice fish in there since I looked it up on the MN DNR Lakefinder. I'm wondering if it's family friendly...since that is not what we are looking for, not that family friendly is bad per se, but farther North is just too far this year and we would rather fish and relax w/o kids!

Any info would be appreciated...

Thanks!

I stayed there for a couple of days about 3 years ago, so have no up to date info. I remember there are 2 loops, not sure about the group camp. The lower loop had a bunch of mature Norway pines and had some scenic quality to it. The lake has a lot of nice structure, you have to wind through a couple shallow bays from where the campground is. Not many of the sites had a view of the lake, which was too bad. The time we stayed there we were the only ones in the entire campgroud, which was great. I assume it might be fairly quiet there most of the time.

Thanks for the info Rodric. From your report, looks like we'll be headed up here. BTW...How did you do on the fishing? We'll probabaly be targeting bass mostly, but anything on the end of the line is always good too.

We didn't do a lot of fishing so can't help you out much there. I do remember catching a couple bass though. I have not personaly fished them, but I know a lot of people consider both Thunder and Roosevelt good fishing lakes as well and would be a short trailer distance from where you are staying. All 3 are very pretty with lots of structure and good survey numbers.

    • I am interested in what this cough muffler looks like
    • Looks like a lot of rocks.  Could be some fish laying on the bottom.  I look for separation between the object and the shadow.  After I get more acquainted with my new unit i will try and post some shots
    • Its a whole new world down there with SI and DI.   After you learn what the picture is showing you,  you'll wonder what took so long to get it   I was a Lowrance guy for years and made the switch to H'bird this year with the new Solix with Mega chirp.  Very happy with it so far.  Amazing clarity and images.

    • Back to the original reply- which one and which size? http://www.homedepot.com/p/Basement-Watchdog-Emergency-Battery-Backup-Sump-Pump-System-BWE/100055241   Amperage (amps) 6.5   Or, if you want to be serious then install a few of these bad boys. I call it the Mother Of All Backups or MOAB for short.   https://www.sumppumpsdirect.com/SUMPRO-SUMPROGOLD-Sump-Pump/p2565.html  
    • Has anyone been on Clear yet this season? Thinking about heading that way in a few weeks to try for some walleye and yellows. 
    •   Well wasn't cheap but you got fixed and it would have been a real mess if she blew out on the lake.
    • Congrats looks like a beautiful and productive lake! Nice work. 
    • Ended up being the clutch dog and reverse gear were wore out... 550 for parts...I almost ended up getting a whole new lower unit, but a buddy was able to find the parts...The shop said they discontinued the parts Yada Yada Yada, but some shop in Hackensack was able to find them I guess...just want the dang boat back ha...
