Is that the private one just south of Brainard? Don and Maria's I think it is called?

I'll look on my other computer if I have some pictures.

Very nice campground we go their every year. They have a heated pool, nice showers/bathrooms. Mainly catch sunnies out there but have to do alot of sorting. Every spot has a concrete slab w/fire pit. Nice shade also.

that reputation goes WAY back:) I remember trying to camp there in our late teens (looooong ago) and when they saw the makeup of our group (meaning, 2 young couples) they made up some nonsense about being booked when they plainly were not. We went up the road to the crow wing state park and the rest is history. i married my date:)

I won't say anything bad about the hosts on the internet, but the campground is very nice! My family had a blast there in the pool! We had a site right on the lake that was very nice.

I did look for pictures, but can't find them. I'll post them if I do.

One thing about private campgrounds...they are a bit more spendy than a State Park, but then again, no pools with slides at the state parks!

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.

    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
