      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Campground near Gooseberry Falls?

Recommended Posts

I was planning on going up to the Gooseberry Falls area in late May sometime with our 5th wheel. However from what I found is that the Gooseberry campsites don't have electric hook-ups. Does anyone know of a good private campground in that area that would be good for us for a weekend..at a good price? I could look a bunch up but I wanted to know if anyone of you had experience with any. Any help would be great.

Also I haven't been up there for a few years so do any of you have good ideas or places that we shouldn't miss going to?

There's a few to choose from.

• The Knife River Campground on the scenic drive, about 5 miles south of Two Harbors. Very reasonable and nice folks. We've stayed there many times.

• There's Penmarallter Campground a couple miles closer to Two Harbors, again on the scenic drive.

• You can also try the Lax Lake Campground up past Silver Bay, off of Highway 1. Never stayed here, but it looks nice.

• The Two Harbors campground is called Burlington Bay Campground. Have stayed here many times. Nice place and you can get a great lake view.

• I believe that Lamb's Resort in Schroeder also has a campground with hook-ups.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the help. I think we're planning on heading up there the last week in May so I'll call around and see what happens. It would be nice to have a lake view from the campground at Two Harbors so we might try that. I appreciate the help.

I would highly recommend Lambs, we stayed there last year and waking up to the sound of waves hitting the rocks on Lake Superior was awesome, very nice campground the people were friendly and everything was very clean. The location is good also, we golfed St. Croix National, rode those mountain slides and spent a day in Grand Marais and didn't have to go far to any of those places.

We stayed in a Tent, it was great, the site was like three tiers, one up above for parking, one with table/fire pit for eating, then walk down below right to the shore, like I said, I would highly recommend Lambs. (Get a shoreside site!!)

Well we've been back for a while but I figured I better let you guys know that we stayed at Lambs Resort. It was nice and clean. We got a lake shore sight so we were pretty much right on the lake. It was quite a haul to get up there (think that next year we'll try to get into the Two Harbors campground). But it was well worth it because we were so close to Grand Marais (a place I wanted to visit while up there). Well worth the trip...can't wait to get up there again.
