Nels Lake Road Condition?

3 posts in this topic

I know a few of you travel the Echo Trail regularly, and wondering if you would mind giving me a report on how the Nels Lake Road looks. I would like to visit my cabin (first time in winter) but don't know if I can get back in by 4wd truck or if I need a snowmobille to get back to it. If I do pull a snowmobile on a trailer up there, any idea where I could park near the truck/trailer overnight on or near Nels Lake Road on the Echo Trail? Thanks in advance ...

I haven't looked at Nels Lake Road when I've been up the Echo, but you should be able to park your rig in the parking area at the intersection of North Arm Road and the Echo, which is pretty close to Nels Lake Road if memory serves. I've seen logging trucks and the county road grader parked there before overnight. Lots of room.

Thanks, that's good info. Parking there would give us a short ride in. I had considered parking somewhere in town and riding in from there, but we'd probably need to make several trips to haul in all the necessities ...i.e. - my wife doesn't travel light. North Arm is much more convenient.

Here's to having a great holiday ... cheers.

      Who wants to fish in the dark, best thing about Vermilion is the ability to catch walleyes during bankers hours.  I would recommend looking into one of the private rentals on the lake (VRBO, etc.), most will have a private dock and offer more privacy.

      Hey Bob,   We are coming up this weekend, fishing for the entire day on Saturday the 21st.  Osakis has been on my radar as have a few of the chain lakes, however with it being so long since I have fished in the area, I just wanted to see if there were any other suggestions for a decent multi-species lake or at least one with a chance for having a respectable crappie - walleye combo.   We also have been looking into Mary, Ida, Irene and Oscar.
