I think most State Forest, or State Park camp grounds allow dogs, but the rules need to be followed such as keeping them on a leash and also controlling barking. They can not be left unattended either.

There are a lot of places up here to go camping. We take our dog everywhere we go camping. But as posted earlier most campsites have rules.

Few places we have stayed at around here are Echo Lake Buyck area, Wake Em Up Bay on Lake Vermillion, Hoo Doo point Lake Vermillion, Nine Mile lake campground, Harriet Lake campground.

Private campgrounds like to charge extra for pets.

State parks have leash rules. Same rules apply to state forest campgrounds but there's generally no one around to enforce any rules.

If your dog isn't a barker, most people won't care if you have one or not.

Reminds me of a time we were camping at Echo Lake and sitting around the campfire and the dog(a very friendly and social Siberian Husky) was laying just off to the side of us. As she is very good when we are camping we weren't paying a whole of attention to what she was doing. All of a sudden we hear our neighbor say "where did you come from" in a pretty much friendly greeting to the dog. She had snuck off and went visiting. He wasn't upset and since she just wanted to go say hi no harm no foul. Just a little embarrassing blush

We were at Shady Oaks in Garden City last Memorial Day weekend. Someone brought their dog along and chained it to the bumper of their RV. It was a barker. Surprised it made it through the weekend. And BTW, I am not just talking about it being out barking all day- it was chained to their bumper 24 hours a day and barked all night.

That is not a dog problem, that is a dog owner problem. I have had 3 dogs and not one has been a barker, more about how you train and treat you dog as to whether they are going to be barkers than the personality of the dog.

The other dog owner problem is when people constantly yell at their dog. Sometimes you wouldn't even know they had a dog if they weren't yelling at it.

Probably the same people you hear yelling at their kids all the time frown

I agree about it being owners problem, but if they had any sense they shoulda boarded it for the weekend. No sense in ruining everyones sleep all weekend. We have a pop-up, and noise barriers are few and far between in them

Just a one time camping trip this summer? How about just taking a test camping trip first?

Try one night at a State Park near by. Just throw whatever you think you will need for the night in the car and go. Don't forget the basics, and don't make it a big deal. Eat first if you want & just bring snacks.

Bring a note pad and a pen with you to jot down all the things you might want to bring next time, you will need it. Bring the little sitzu and try it out.

After that you will be able to plan your July-August weekend better.

PS...An inflatable air mattress in a tent is one of the best luxuries you can have camping...in my opinion. Plus an electric pump for it...

    • Where did you hear that food plots were to be banned?   I have seen about banning "feeding deer"  which I took to mean the classic set up a feeder and dump corn and alfalfa in it.     Jumping on areas immediately has been shown to be successful in preventing isolated cases from spreading and becoming endemic.   Once it becomes established in the herd, it seems as if controlling it is no longer possible.   It also seems as if CWD is fairly hard to catch for a deer, or else it would be all over everywhere and all the deer in an area like Dane county would have it.    Oh, and the infected deer could have come from a deer farm, or from Iowa where it has been detected in the county bordering MN on the SE.    
    • I wouldn't call myself wealthy, but I've made good life choices that have enabled me to buy my own land.  Still pack my own lunch and watch for sales at the grocery store.  I don't own land in SE MN, I own land in northern MN.  The reason I am concerned is that this will serve as a template for herd control tactics in other parts of MN.  Understand that the game management agencies have conferences where they talk about managing hunters.  You don't have to look any further than the work of Dr. Gary Alt in Pennsylvania.    I can't put my finger on exactly what is going on with the results the DNR has presented.  Were the samples snuck in by a nefarious actor?  I wouldn't rule it out.  Was the disease always here and just finally discovered?  I don't see why not.  Is there a unique environmental reason that CWD hasn't gotten a broad foothold here?  It's possible.    If the agency had some credibility going into this, I'd be on board pounding kool aid myself, but they don't.  So color me skeptical.  None of the WI border counties along zone 3 have CWD according to this map.  However, Burnett and Polk do and there is no monitoring on our side up there.  Can a scientist explain that to me?  Because the geographic barriers up there are non-existent compared to  the Mississippi River along zone 3.       
    • I made the decision to replace the pump every few years rather than the carpet.
    • On my aluminum skid house I've been using thread cutting stainless steel screws from Fastenal
    • There might be a pleasant surprise in the works.   In the meantime, it is entertaining to watch anyway....      
    • Huh---Guess you must have the butthurt.
    • You are cooking it before you eat it right? I've only heard people using Cure when using dehydrators or may be for jerky when using burger. I have never used the stuff but don't like or make dehydrated jerky.   Seem to still be alive!
    • Creepworm, I am somewhat angry.  The reason it's fool hardy to consider food plots any more threat than a farm field is that the intentions of the planter don't change the flavor of the forage.  A food plot is no more attractive than the edge of a 160 acre bean field that meets a fence line, swamp edge, or grove.     Now imagine there are no farm fields or food plots at all, not even a decent yielding apple tree.  Deer will still communicate via scrape trees and licking branches during the rut.  If the current belief is that the prions spread via saliva, what's to stop wild deer from licking a branch that an infected buck has licked?  What's to stop a buck from rubbing their face all over a contaminated branch?    My fear is that lots of deer are going to be slaughtered in an area that just happens to have been a hot target for eradication before CWD was found.  I'm also worried we're going to get all kinds of bad rules imposed that won't do squat to actually stop the spread if the disease is actually in MN.  I'm worried we'll lose a critical habitat tool that allows us in harsh winter kill areas to help the deer make it through winter (food plots).    It'd be interesting to watch the DNR try to ban food plots.  Good luck defining what is and is not a food plot. 
    • Don't know how they got there.  Maybe they got confused with CWD and wandered up from Iowa.   Or maybe there are a few more but they didn't happen to get shot or didn't get tested.     So, you are a wealthy land owner?  Is the land in 348?     Sure, you are free to question the DNR.   I never said you weren't.   And you, so far as I know, are free to refuse to cooperate with the program to control CWD.   As I have said, that is exactly the response of the land owners in Wisconsin that I recall from back in the day.     However I am curious.   Are you accusing the DNR of planting or fabricating this instance of cwd for some nefarious purpose, like killing most of the deer in that area for unknown reasons?   Or do you just think that these were the only two sick deer and everything will be fine without any action? 
    • Nice product.  Would work great with my Lindell Ice Rigs....
