Disabled guy need accessible camp site

3 posts in this topic

A guy I work with has CP and uses a wheelchair. He likes to fish and has Lund SV 16. He knows I fish Vermillion and asked me for information regarding a resort with campsites that are somewhat accessible. He gets around pretty good and will have an aid and another one of his friends to help him out. He uses a tent because he can't get into RV's because of the door size, floor plans and steps.

Does anyone know a resort with campsites that have a reasonably flat area with access to a good smooth dock. The area does not have to have to be super accessible. I told him about he campground on Hoodoo, but I advised him to stay away from the Big Bay area because he could have some problems with wind. So, does anybody have and ideas or alternatives?

Wakemup Bay campground has a handicap accessible site and it would be pretty easy to deal with the docking. There are no showers or anything like that but there is water and the campground host is pretty helpful. I camp there a couple times a year, pretty nice campground.

I second the idea of the Wakemup Bay campground. It has a couple of docks, and there's plenty of good fishing nearby on Wakemup, Norwegian, and Niles Bays. The location is in a fairly protected bay with good routes to other protected waters in case of windy weather.

It's a state forest campground, so the rates are reasonable.

      I've been scouting public land like crazy to find some spots for upcoming archery and the spring turkey season and haven't found a shed yet. I even ventured into a sure bedding area hoping I'd see one in there and no dice.    It shouldn't be too much longer.

      No one else getting concerned with the Wild's lack of intensity??? darn good when they want to be and awful mediocre when not buzzing....... Been a long time since I watched them play 3 full periods of real hockey.....

      Just looked at the harbor cam in canal park and looked like there was two guys out fishing from the pier. Now that the gates are open I would say that's what they were doing. Feel free to share any reports you have or would like to share. Good luck all!

      I grew up in this area and if walk in a ways  you can be all by yourself. Best time deer hunting can be during duck season when people are moving the deer.
