Where to leave truck and trailer???

5 posts in this topic

If I wanted to put in at Ash River Visitor Center ... can you leave your rig there for a week or so, or do you need to find a resort that offers parking?

Thanks for responses,

Nick

Nope, you'll be fine. Just make sure you're not parked at one of the "prime" areas.

What is considered a prime area?

Ash River has parking for about 100 vehicles and trailers. There are also NPS rangers working there most of the day. It gets pretty busy and crowed during July and the first two-weeks of August. After that the traffic falls off significantly. I've left my vehicle there at least 20 times and have not experienced any security problems. I don't have any idea what a prime parking area is either.

There are 3 parking lots for rigs at Ash River, and I'll be up there for 15 of the next 21 days. No problem parking your rig there for a week. I did have one problem there about 8 years ago, had my truck keyed during a stay. Chalked it up to kids, and havn't had a problem since.

I dont have a clue what is meant by "prime" spots either.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
