Tent campgrounds?

Recommended Posts

minnleu

Any good cheap or free tent campgrounds on or near a lake between P Rapids and Bemidji?

Nothing fancy just a flat spot with a fire pit.

Thank you

Try 'Bad Medicine Resort' on Bad Medicine lake. Don has some beautiful campgrounds on a great lake. they wont be free, but I'm sure they are very reasonable. You'ld never regret the stay.

If you're talking about the state forest campground by the access to Mantrap it is cheap, last time I was there $9/night, nice sized lots. Doesn't have electricity, running water or shower houses though, just vault toilets. If you are just going for the weekend and don't mind putting up with your own funk for a day or two nice place to stay and like I said, right by hte public access to Mantrap.

Also some state camping sites just SW of Little Mantrap, on some small out of the way lakes. Not too far off of 71 about 9 or 10 miles north of Park Rapids.

Otherwise there is the Breeze campgound on Eagle Lake. 7 miles north of Park Rapids. Its very nice but you will have to pay.

There's a state forest campground at Two Inlets. It's a couple miles west of the lumber store on 71. We've stayed there a couple times.

There is a small campground at Whippoorwhill Resort on UpperBottle lake between Park Rapids and Lake George. Go to Whippoorwhillresort.com for more info. I am not sure how late in September they are open though. The Mantrap campground is close to there if you need it.

      I’ve had the same issue with keeping them alive. Dead bait works way way better than live bait anyway. Defiently going to give that a try wanderer!

      I’ve saved dead/dying suckers before.  Pull them as soon as you can and freeze em.  I’ve sprinkled them with salt before bagging and freezing.  Fish them on the bottom. There was a time I targeted big pike with big minnows and would actually kill a minnow before sinking it to the bottom with one of my lines. As with everything, it’ll work better some places at some times, not as much as a live minnow other times.  Later season when pike cruise just below the ice scooping up the dead loss of the winter, suspending your dead sucker a foot below the ice can be your big fish ticket.

      If you really want to challenge yourself, make the "hook" mostly barbless, which is what one of my kids somehow managed to do. Just aim for the toothiest area.....

      What lake? I'm in Moundsview so I like hearing about visibility nearby.  Struggling to find clear water this year. Poor visibility on Forest, Clear, Centerville so far. WBL has good visibility. But I hate spearing on muskie lakes. Plus, WBL doesn't have big pike per surveys.

      The only tying groups I know are here in the Twin Cities, and there are quite a few that gather during the winter months.  I'm not sure of any in the SW near you.
