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.

      Based on Cliff's water temp of 38°F, I'm not too sure about Dec. 3-5.  Think it will be more like Dec. 7-9.  I have ice fever and I need a cure.  Last year's first ice PB of 29", 8½# shown below would definitely cure that, but it may not be until Dec. 15-16 now.

      Hey all,   I'm sure everyone has heard, but we're finally getting some nice freezing weather heading in from up north (https://weather.com/weather/tenday/l/56303:4:US). Early next week nightly lows will be sub 10's. So with ice season quickly approaching, I'd like to know what everyone usually does getting prepared to walk on water. As a newbie to ice fishing (only done it the last two seasons), I'm curious to see how everyone preps their gear and what other things you all do before going out on the ice. I finally got my hands on a nice flasher and power auger to add to the rest of my gear, any suggestions for nifty equipment to help make things easier?    This is open for any discussion on any ice fishing tips for newer fishers! Please feel free to ask questions or discuss your prep process for the season. Let's all hope for this forecast to follow through and get some good ice out there.    -JK

      Forecast temperature-wise looks favorable for ice mid- to late-next week, but it does not look like the winds are going to cooperate.

      Would be nice to get some ice that's for sure. No doubt these forums have gone cold. 5-6 years ago there would be dozens of posts daily just on this thread. Maybe the newness of these forums has wore off or because everything has been hashed over a couple hundred times I don't know. I'm ready for some ice fishing I know that.
