Trout/Walleye lake with campground?

4 posts in this topic

My wife and I looking for a nice campground (or cheap cabin rental) to go to next week. We only have 3 days so I did not want drive more than 2 - 2 1/2 hours. We would like to catch some trout and walleyes and maybe some bluegils. We have a 12 ft boat with a 3 hp or trolling motor and 16 ft with a 50 hp so it doesn't matter what size the lake is (not Superior though). Any info would be great! Thank you in advance!

Post the question in the Brainerd section. You may get better responses. If memory serves me right there are lakes around Brainerd that are stocked with trout. I know Lake Roosevelt has lake trout, as does a lake or two in the Whitefish Chain.

I like Silver Rapids Lodge but it might be a little far for you. It's right off White Iron Lake on the Kawishiwi river just outside of Ely. They have campsites at $15/night and that gives you access to all the resort amenities (Showers, bathrooms, Sauna, etc.). Great Walleye fishing on all three lakes on the chain (White Iron, Farm and Garden). And if you're after trout, there's a lake about 15 minutes up the road called Lake Tofte that's beautiful and full of Rainbows and Splake. My friends and I go up there once a year because it's such a good deal and a great time. It's definitely worth the extra hour or two in the car. The website is silverrapidslodge.com, check it out!

MC CARTHY STATE PARK NORTH OF HIBBING. PICKERAL IS A TROUT LAKE JUST NORTH OF SIDE LAKE THAT HAS SHORE FISHING ACCESS AROUND MOST OF THE LAKE AND THERE ARE MORE BLUEGILLS, WITH SOME BEING VERY NICE, THAT YOU CAN GET INTO ON ANY OF THE 5 LAKES IN THE CHAIN. THERE ARE ALSO SOME WALLEYES AROUND ON THE DEEP WEED EDGES, BUT THAT HIS HIT AND MISS. THE STATE PARK IS THERE AND ALSO THE CC CAMPGROUND. ITS A BIT FURTHER THAN YOU MENTIONED, BUT 3.5 HOURS ISNT ALL THAT BAD.

      Jayden,   Hey I grew up in Austin! I know of some great places to camp in Ontario if your interested. You would need to bring your own boat 16' would be fine, but it can be done super cheap! I normally camp with a good group of guys and it costs about $250 a week per person. That includes all gas and food for the trip!

           I work during day and live 2 miles from Blue lake ... i get home and hop on the 4 wheeler and have about 1 hour to fish.   The access on the lake is to darn deteriorated ... will see if things firm up next week, 60 and sunny today is the forecast.  Gonna be a close one even if it cools down next week.   We shall see ... Boy does ice fishing help winter pass fast (if that is possible)
