Looking for suggestions for a weekend trip within couple hours of MPLS..


Recommended Posts

I thought I might take my son (5 years old) on a weekend trip somewhere with our drop down house. We've spent this past weekend out on Waconia, so I know he's comfortable in the house. Now I'm looking to take him some where that'll feel like a 'trip' and where he can actually catch some fish (besides perch).

Looking for suggestions for either walleye, jumbo perch or crappies.

I thought about millacs, but doesnt it cost something like $30 just to pull a drop down out on the lake?

Thanks in advance.

You can do Mille Lacs just fine and almost everywhere on the lake charges $10 to use their road or else there are public accesses. Just don't get caught using a private road cause if they know it some people get grumpy about it.

I was up there 2 weekends ago and we paid $10 for a resort the first day and the next day we went out of public access....FREE. Bring a GPS to find oyur way back.

2hr drive and plenty of options for food, bait etc.

That would be fun Harvey, but I'm already taking every friday and the week of february 14th off (heading up to LOW). smile.gif

I think I'll make a trip up to Mill Lacs on the weekend of the 10th.

Any suggestions on resorts to leave out of?

Do you go fishing out on Waconia on those fridays off? I have fridays off too and am usually out there. If you are, Maybe I will see you out there sometime. I have a 6yr old, the boys would probably get along well.

I'd suggest Mille Lacs, though the fishing has been slow lately, and might not be a good choice for a youngster. Unless you let him bring a friend, then when they get bored they can just run around on the ice and play.

Some resorts charge $30 I believe if you have a large tow-behind ice house. If you just have your truck though with a portable popup type house, it's usually $10 access fee. Call around before you go up to find the actual prices per resort.

If I'm in town, I'll more than likely be out on Waconia.. AT least that was the plan when I decided to take the fridays off. Spend the night Thursday night - Sunday.

As far as Mill Lacs..

I called Terry's boat harber, a co-worker suggested them. He charged $25 for the weekend, which I'll gladly pay.

    • Luxury RV camping has become increasingly popular in recent years as people look for ways to enjoy the great outdoors while still enjoying the comforts of home. With the right equipment and preparation, luxury RV camping can be a truly unforgettable experience. In this essay, we will provide you with the ultimate guide to luxury RV camping, including tips on choosing the right RV, selecting the best campsite, and packing for your trip.   The first step to planning a luxury RV camping trip is to choose the right RV. There are a variety of different types of RVs available, ranging from small and compact trailers to large and luxurious motorhomes. The right RV for you will depend on your budget, your travel plans, and your personal preferences.   One popular option for luxury RV camping is a Class A motorhome. These motorhomes are typically the largest and most luxurious RVs available, with spacious interiors, full kitchens, and even multiple bathrooms. They often come equipped with high-end features such as leather upholstery, flat-screen televisions, and high-quality audio systems. Class A motorhomes are also the most expensive type of RV, but they offer the ultimate in comfort and luxury.   Another popular option for luxury RV camping is a fifth wheel trailer. These trailers are typically larger than travel trailers and are designed to be towed by a pickup truck. They offer many of the same amenities as Class A motorhomes, including full kitchens, multiple bathrooms, and high-end features such as surround sound systems and flat-screen televisions. Fifth wheel trailers are often less expensive than Class A motorhomes but still offer a high level of comfort and luxury.   Once you have chosen the right RV for your luxury camping trip, the next step is to select the perfect campsite. There are a variety of different types of campsites available, ranging from basic, no-frills campsites to high-end RV resorts with all the amenities. When selecting a campsite, it is important to consider your budget, your travel plans, and your personal preferences.   If you are looking for a truly luxurious camping experience, consider staying at an RV resort. These resorts often offer a wide range of amenities, including swimming pools, hot tubs, fitness centers, and even golf courses. They also typically offer high-end services such as concierge service, valet parking, and room service. RV resorts can be expensive, but they offer the ultimate in luxury and comfort.   If you are looking for a more affordable camping experience, consider staying at a state or national park. These parks offer a variety of different campsites, ranging from basic tent sites to RV sites with electrical and water hookups. While state and national parks may not offer the same level of luxury as RV resorts, they do offer the opportunity to experience the natural beauty of the outdoors.     Once you have chosen the perfect RV and campsite, the final step is to pack for your luxury camping trip. When packing for a luxury RV camping trip, it is important to focus on comfort and convenience. Pack clothing that is appropriate for the weather and activities you have planned, as well as comfortable shoes for hiking and exploring.   In addition to clothing, it is important to pack all the essentials you will need for your trip. This includes bedding, towels, toiletries, and any medications or other personal items you may need. It is also important to pack food and drinks, as well as any cooking supplies you will need for meals. If you are camping in the cold weather, bring the Ocoopa Union 5s rechargeable hand warmers are easy to use for camping. First, charge it, then turn it on, and finally, place it in your gloves or pockets. Additionally, the rechargeable hand warmer has 4 heat settings, allowing you to adjust the temperature to various weather conditions. With a large 10000mAh battery, it can provide up to 15 hours of heat and could use as a power bank, making it an ideal hand warmer for extended outdoor activities.   Finally, when packing for your luxury RV camping trip, don’t forget to pack entertainment options such as books, movies, and games. While luxury camping offers many opportunities for relaxation and outdoor activities, it is also important to have options for downtime and relaxation.
