Suggestions for campgrounds?

Recommended Posts

Ok guys and gals, I need some help in planning a camping trip for late June.

I would like some suggestions on campgrounds to try within 2 hours of the west metro. We will have a mixed bag of people going, but probably a rather large group, say 15-20 people. Both women & men, some that will spend most of the weekend fishing and others that would like other things to do. We will
have campers and tents.

In terms of fishing we would like a lake that offers both good walleye and smallie fishing.

Any help anyone can provide will be great!!

Please e-mail me any links that can not be posted here.

I'd pick Green Lake, Spicer, MN. Less than a couple hours west of the cities. Camp ground on the NNE side of the lake. Great smallie and walleye fishing lake. Within a few minutes of New London, MN, home of the Little Crow Water Ski Team, one of the best ski shows in the country.

Grabs,

Try Schroeder County Park on Cedar Lake out by Annandale. Located right next to Clearwater, that way you can do a little prefishing for L.E.T.S and let the rest of us in on all your secrets grin.gif

They don't start taking Reservations until 4/15. This is also the campground that is being suggested for L.E.T.S

I would have to agree with doubleUcubed. Try making reservation at COunty PArk #5 on the NE side of Green Lake. Lot's of lakes in the area, State PArk nearby and other fine things to see and do.

Well guys, I am been doing some searching. Green looks like a great lake for walleyes and smallies!! And so does Nest, located right just west of Green. The problem is I can't find many places with camping. Park #5 has camping, but they have a 1 week minimum for reservations. They said we could just show up on that weekend and hope for an open spot, but with 10-15 people I just don't want to take that risk! I would still like to try Green and/or Nest, so if anyone has any leads on places to camp on either of these lakes, or nearby that will take reservations for one weekend please let me know.

Thanks for the help!

wow...cty park 5 has a one week minimum? That's interesting.....
Give the Old Mill Inn a try. No camping, but they have cabins. Also, county park 3 on Diamond, which is not too far away, has camping as does Sibley State Park(on Lake Andrew) all are within 10 miles of Green and Nest. I know there are a number of resorts on Nest, but I cant think of their names right now.
