Boat-in campsites?

4 posts in this topic

Will be coming up in 10 days with a good friend to fish hard for 3 days. We've stayed at different resorts in the past but would like to camp this time. Does anyone have a favorite boat-in site? We've both done the Nam/Kab sites and really enjoyed them. Are there any sites on the Big-V comparable? Any info would be helpful. Thanks!

Depends on what part of the lake you are going to be on. Hinsdale island has some really nice sites on and there are some nice ones in Portage bay as well. All or most of the sites have fire rings and the good ol camp toilets as well as bear boxes and I know a few have picnic tables. The better sites can get filled quickly but this time of the year you will probably have a good shot at getting a good site. Keep in mind that the fallen wood for fires is probably pretty well picked over so plan on packing in some fire wood. Hope this helps. Have fun and stay warm! grin.gif

Thanks for the info MNBIGBEAR. Are there some other nice spots besides Hinsdale and Portage Bay? We can get to the fish anywhere on the lake.

at 4 bucks a gallon, being close is an advantage. Hinsdale is pretty centrally located. And there are several sites. I know of another place on west end, but only 1 site and sort of out of the way

      as of 12/5 on the West end many small bays were wide open. Water levels are very high in the local rivers, swamps and I am guessing the lake. It is information that I received from a relative last night.   Be safe   Steve

      No never ever caught a walleye early on the West end. Go east to catch early walleye   We have not had a good slip bobber early season walleye bite in many years. Used to be able to catch them from the docks and rock points every spring. Easy fun fishing. Now we work hard for the fish we catch. West end.   Largemouth bass, sunfish, and bullheads have been caught very regularly on slip bobbers and leeches the last 15 years. I bet they also eat walleye fry. Could possibly be a part of the missing young of the year fish in the recent fall nettings. I did not hear how fall 2016 shook out.

      Nice catch Mitch.  Those are some well fed Northerns.

      We ended up going through Tom Wilson. Pretty good price for a weekend. Now we just need ice.   http://www.leechlakeicefishing.com/fishhouse.html
