Atvs and boating at the same campground?

Recommended Posts

My family goes on a camping trip together every summer and next year is our turn to pick the location and plan it. My wife and I really enjoy atvs as do a couple of others in the group, some of the others would prefer the boat and watersking. Are there any campgrounds that you can do both from? We would love to be able to either walk to the boat or atv and just take off from the site, also we live in North Branch but everyone else lives in Alexandria and it would be nice if we could keep the drive under 3hrs for all of us. Anybody know of anything like that?

I would guess you can find what your looking for around the Mille Lacs area. Although Redtop can be boring for more experienced riders.

I know in the fall of the year that we have rode ATV's out of Stony Point Resort in Cass Lake, Soo Line Trail Access is just across Highway 2 from the resort, and then there are many miles of logging roads that you can ride as well back there.

This is kinda what I am looking for but not so far north. Maybe something in the outing area?

You might want to try up by Akeley. I know there is a Crow wing lake just north of town and there is Kabakona which is a bigger lake. There's quite a few miles of trails too.

    • Besides the motor on the back, I don't see much a difference between an old boat and a new boat.   It's not like new boats parallel park themselves.           
    • and still end up with an old boat as was said earlier.  I think it's more a labor of love for what we have...
    • looks like it got corrected! thanks Rick
    • Looks fine to me @rundrave :D
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Surface water temperatures range from 65 in the morning reaching low 70s during the late afternoon. 

      Minnesota has been best in shallower areas such as the Flag Island Flats (5-9 ft.) Prime time being the evening bite with many nice fish including a 31" beast. Deeper water around Four Blocks and LIttle Oak are providing good action for Walleye/Sauger. Orange has been the top color. Even with the recent Mayfly hatch and plenty of crayfish in fishes bellies, (Walleye, Sauger and Northerns) the fishing is awesome!

      Canadian fishing has been the best using bottom bouncers in the mud with gold being the most productive color spinners. Jigging will produce fish around structure with larger Walleye/Sauger coming out of 26+ feet of water. Pike and Muskie action is somewhat concentrated to underwater weeds or occasionally while jigging for walleye.

      We hope to see you soon!

    • I think you'd probably have to develop connections to find the right boats at the right price.  If you could also increase the number of boats you do in a given season you could also start buying some materials in bulk which would help drive material costs down.  Still I'm guessing margins would be relatively thin, certainly not a get rich quick scheme. 
    • New Ice shelter coming this fall from Otter and Polaris specifically made for full size Rangers.  This will be available through Polaris Dealers.   https://fishingminnesota.com/forums/topic/210952-new-ice-shelter-from-polaris-and-otter/    
    • Sure I do Dave. You take a lot of nasty old rotted left over wood from torn down houses or where ever else they scrape it up from?  Sweep it up off the floor and turn it into little compressed pellets usually for heating stoves, then Dave makes his food with it! 😜    
    • Because that's the technical term. I can't help it if you don't know what a pellet grill is or what it can do. I'm more than happy to educate you though.....     BTW, those St. Louis spare ribs were a 5-1/2 hour smoke.
