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.

    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
    • Got mine yesterday during the snow.  I was informed that there is a new rule requiring the MN Fishing Regulations be carried on your boat and that this new rule is not documented in the Regs.  Anyone know if this is fact or just a kindly recommendation?
    • Mike is as good as it gets, especially if you're talking archery.
    • Mike Foster A-1 Archery in Hudson WI March 19th at 6:30
    • Coyle for Donato and a 5th, not as bad as nino for rask because at least donato has some potential to be a better goal scorer but overall yikes, not thrilled with Fentons bigger trades so far, the smaller ones have been good but that is the problem. Either way all signs point toward a rebuild of some kind.
    • It's a prairie zone.  We're right on the northern edge of the hills, Just north of I90 near Sturgis.
    • Wow, Bobber! You resurrected an oldie from the good old days, here!    I STILL haven't tried this yet - although I have bought a LOT of Prague Powder between then and now.😁   I think any roast wold work but you might get a pretty fatty result with chuck.  If you're looking to make corned beef & cabbage for St.Patty's Day and eat it more like a pot roast - a little extra fat might not be bad. But if you're looking to make your own lunch meat or eat it cold, I think chuck would get a little greasy in your mouth.  Corned beef is traditionally made with brisket.   Maybe I'll give this a go - it's almost that magical time of the year - that sweet spot between youth hockey season and youth baseball season when I get to do what I want... sometimes.
    • Heres a pic of those relays. People out riding the trail out here and my sled is in the shop.
