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.

        Yes sir! 8ft-9ft rods seem to work the best IMO.

      4/23/17     Crappies still biting in west Metro area lakes. Water temp in the mid 50's now, and the fish are moving a little shallower. We caught tons of 8 to 11 inch crappies in about ten feet of water, with some weeds on the bottom. Fished a jig tipped with a Powerbait minnow about four feet below a slip-float for great success. Some sunfish starting to show up in the same areas. Water temp probably won't rise much this week with the forecast of cooler temps and quite a bit of rain, but as the water does warm fish should continue to move shallower and get more aggressive. Check out my You Tube channel for some short video clips and a full length show about springtime crappie fishing. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.
