More camper cabins needed

5 posts in this topic

So here's a thought: with the high price of gas, and smaller cars, I think there is a need for more camper cabins in our state parks.

I think more people would camp if it didn't require all of the work and equipment. I would prefer to use one if there was one available, but they are always reserved.

Yes, I know I could reserve one a year in advance, but that just doesn't work for me.

I am wondering if my 1 year Mn state park pass was a waste of money. I tried on 5 different weekends to book a spot at Flandrau in New Ulm, each time a couple weeks in advance, and they are always full it seems. If more cabins opens up some spots, I am all for it

I think the closer parks are always hard to get a site. Especially now with gas prices people are sticking closer to home.

Mille Lacs Kathio is nearly half booked for next Memorial Weekend and Bear Paw in Itasca is nearly all booked for the last weekend in September 2009. I got the last electric site in Crow Wing for Memorial.

I wouldn't wait too long to make weekend reservations for any campground for next summer.

I don't know about camper cabins specifically but we certainly seen to need more campgrounds. It is pretty tough to plan a camping trip a year ahead of time when you have kids that are in activities. As our kids get older it gets tougher each year.

    • I would say your results speak for themselves, we often do things that don't make sense or trade short term gain for long term trouble. Nature does things for a reason that we often don't understand, why try to fix what isn't broken?
    • Two charter boats. (11 people) Fishing was very slow last Sunday afternoon (8), but we did really well on Monday morning (43). Due to bad luck drawing cards, neither Mrs Duff or I touched a rod on Sunday. She went 5 for 5 on Monday. That's fishing for ya though. And true fishermen understand that.   Some real nice fish this year, good luck to those that make it out there.      
    • And no, it does not have some sort of virus. They are calling it a phishing site and it is not. It competes with Google adsense so it make sense for Google to be sloppy in their algorithm.
    • Great storytelling with pictures on a portion of your life experiences in the  great outdoors.  Thanks for sharing Len.  
    • Len - This was a very nice article.  I enjoyed your writing style.  Take care.
    • I am going to pick up a box to pattern against what I am shooting now. Here is my question. They are available in both 1 3/4 oz. shot and 1 7/8 oz. shot in 12 gauge. In a 3" 12 gauge #5 shot shell, that comes out to a 21 pellet difference. The velocity for 1 3/4 is 1200 fps, for 1 7/8 is 1080. At 20 yards it would make very little difference, but say at 45 yards would you rather have the extra 21 pellets or the added velocity? I suppose the answer is to buy both and pattern them, but I am curious as to the thoughts of the folks on this board. Thanks
    • I was looking to get an otter XT pro cabin this winter, I was wondering of anyone on here has an otter in the pro platform and how they like the extra insulated walls. Does it seem bulky? Too warm on above 0 days? I wouldn't mind just the normal cabin but they only offer it with a bench it seems but having the extra insulation may be nice to have for those cold days here and there. 
    • Thank You for the very interesting and enjoyable morning read
