7 posts in this topic

I am considering getting into a seasonal campground next year. I was wondering if anyone could share their expediences good or bad on doing this?

We live near Northfield and Faribault and would like to find something with in an hours drive or so.

I've been in one for 15 years. Like an old folks home with travel trailers, but we always get a good night's sleep. Only as good as the owners/managers. Previous owner caused me to put up "for sale" sign. New owner took over and sign came down. Suggest staying at one for a weekend and ask a lot of questions. Decide what kind of campground you want. Party place, kids place, drinking, ok with with old crummy trailers and lots of junk laying around or do you want fussy owners with a lot of rules. You will find a lot of variations. Good luck.

TLAR, if you like to fish, make sure that the campground is at a lake that you would like to fish at all year long.

Here is a little more info on what we are looking for. I want a place with decent fishing, family friendly, and well kept.

Any recommendations would be great.

We had a seasonal site for nearly ten summers at a resort just purchased by a younger semi-retired couple. After a few seasons, they became more "resort owners" and started to charge for everything. The final factor was when they started to charge fees for friends that stay overnight at my camper. They wanted $35/night for from fishing buddy that came up to visit for a weekend and slept in MY camper. Left the resort at the end of the season and bought my own lot. Now only I get to make the rules.

    • Looks interesting. They have those nets that you put down a hole that do the same thing, but I can see where some people would prefer this more solid version.
    •   The land in question is a 40 acre parcel up near Remer. My FIL's uncle has owned it since my FIL was a small child and he has been spending time up there ever since. It's a cool parcel of land with lake frontage but it is hard to get to. The last mile or so is basically an ATV trail. When it is dry enough we can get in with trucks but the last time I was up there there were a lot of trees across the trail that would need to be cleared.    I would love to be able to own that land but ultimately it has to be an immediate family member. My FIL says he was supposed to inherit it because his dad used to be half owner as well. It is looking less and less likely that will happen because the current owner's wife is in a nursing home and the money has run out. We think there may be a lien on the property already but don't know for sure.    My FIL needs to talk to his uncle about the situation before it's too late but I think he is holding out hoping to inherit it. I hope that happens but I'm pretty sure it won't.
    • This is a good way to keep them crisp
    •   I was just wondering where it was since you said you needed a 4 wheeler to get into it. I know the woods up in that area pretty well after years of hunting, snowmobiling and Dual Sport riding all over. Not thinking of buying but just wondering where it was?
    • I'm not fighting with anyone.   Many ways to make antennas, and for receivers in cars wavelengths aren't all that important.   Class up your vehicle with a wire nut or a fox tail or whatever you like.  
    •   Still a possibility but due to family dynamics it would have to be a joint venture with my FIL. He is the one that would have to technically make the purchase and we would go halves with him but he isn't doing anything about it right now.    It may still be a possibility but I'm not holding my breath.
    • sounds like draw length is too long
    • Wax all the string except where the serving is as the wax can get under it and cause it to slip   You should be able to tell the serving because the string will be thicker. Serving is just a thin string wrapped around you bow string. Will be around your peep sight around your d loop   If all else fails just go to your local archery shop and ask them for some pointer about waxing and other general bow maintenance that you should be doing hope some of this info helps though good luck!
