Resort on Trout, Wabana, Bluewater

6 posts in this topic

Just a quick question. Are there still any resorts on the Trout, Bluewater, Wabana chain. There used to be at least 2 that I can think of but I haven't driven by in a while. If not, one would have to stay up on Spider. Just from memory, I can't think of anything else that's real close to that particular Trout Lake.....Thanks for the help.

I believe kastners old resort is still in buisness on big trout, at the north end of the lake, near the public access.

I have not been there in a while, but the last time we went to the joyce estate, that's where we parked.

there is wagathaka on the south end of big wabana, but it is mostly used for buisness guest's of the miner family.

the resorts are dissapearing. kinda sad if you ask me.

The taxes are forcing many of them out. The lakeshore cost is going up so high most places can't keep pace. Truly sad.

Jigglestick hit the nail on the head! I've never been to Wagathaka (sp?) but have parked at the resort on the north end of Big Trout a couple times. It seems like a very nice family oriented resort and very nice owner, from the little I've talked to them. In my opinion, that's the prettiest area in Itasca County. Looking at the phone book, I see a Bluewater Bay Lodge on Bluewater and Wabayo on Wabana.

        Oh, says the guy that just took the plunge! I'm sure it will do your little pan fish ok. Let me know if you need a few Walleye's to try?

      I had a battery op Repala a few years ago and sold it to someone else at our campground. Didn't like the way they just zipped through without following the fillets and lost a lot of meat. Really suk's on a partly frozen fish!   Mine came with a case.
