Hinsdale Island Camping

5 posts in this topic

I was just curious if any has camped on this island before. I guess I dont haveissues with camping on it but I was wondering if there is a boat dock or something to protect my boat from rocks/shoreline and etc? Does anyone have any kind of information on this? Thanks for any help.

Camped there numerous times, but only in a few spots...Those places didn't have a boat dock but I remember one in particular was nicely protected from the wind. Its a really nice place to camp hope this helps some, if you have any more specifics I'm sure either me or someone else can answer.

I know a couple sites on the east end of the island have small sand spots you can pull a boat up on to. The last one I camped on was in sort of a bay on the island and there was a site on either end of the bay. both looked like nice spots

Thanks for the info. Does every site have its own little sand beach/protected bay? I've only seen the island while going around it and never actually been on the island. Are sites far from each other? Will one site fit 2 - 4 man tents?

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
