Good Multispecies Lake with Camping

9 posts in this topic

Looking ahead here a few months,but looking for some good lake options that have camping available over in the South Central area. Any of the Faribult lakes come into play? Looking for something over Memorial Day weekend. Something with good fishing and other things to do for the kids.

We stayed at Keisler's a few years back which wasn't bad, but a tad expensive. Looking for someplace new to try.

Thanks.

Keisler's, would have been my first option. You can try Beaver Dam on Jefferson and German.

Beaver Dam is a nice place and you can fish Jefferson or German or Francis is only Five miles from there if you wanted to trailer the boat, Camp Del's in Waterville is also another place to look into, great fishing that time of year on Tetonka,

Other options would be Bray Park on Madison Lake, Sakatah State Park (also in Waterville) and I believe there are some camping opportunities in and around Shieldsville.

I second Otter on Madison and Bray Park. Memorial day is a great weekend to be on Madison for multi-species. Walleyes can be had and usually the big slabs and bull-gills are shallow and aggressive.

Thanks for the feedback. Right now I think I'm leaning towards Bray Park. I also found a couple on Roberds Lake as well, particularily Roberds Lake Resort & Campground and Shady Acre's. Any thoughts on these two places and also Roberds Lake as a whole.

Thanks.

Camp Dels in Waterville is great for kids (lots to do) & access to Sakatah/Tetonka, but it is $$$$.

I hope they continue to keep Bray park clean. It seems to have improved since they put in the fishing piers, but before that, the rip rap sections were strewn with beer cans, diapers, cardboard, food, etc. We had just moved from just north of the cities at that time and we were surprised at how littered the place was. It doesn't take much to carry your garbage out. IT just makes our area look like a bunch of rednecks when we don't hump out our litter....

Both of those resorts are well run by local families. Roberds is a good multi species lake. The lake does green up the later in the year you go. But most lakes down here do.

      Cannons a go good 3 inches where I check and two guys out 100 yards

      We're making ice now. 0 degrees in Twig   I measured a spot along my shore that had opened during the warm up and found 4" of ice. If I thought about going out to deeper water I for sure would use caution and chisel my way.

      Yes SA fills tanks and should be able to fill a 30 lb tank but they charge a flat rate.  So if your tank is half full or empty you pay the same flat rate.    Uhaul charges by weight and you pay for what they put in.   Both are cheaper then the tank exchange and most tank exchange are 17 lb whereas SA and Uhaul fills to 20 lb.  When you figure that in your paying a lot more for convenience.    One more detail.  If your tank is out of date and needs a new inspection it can't be filled by UHaul or SA BUT the tank exchange will take them.

      I don't know of any product that will keep a pair work gloves dry.  Sure you can spray a water repellent on them that might bead rain water off but go work in them and they'll be saturated.   If your wearing the gloves for protection having them wet isn't the end of the world but if you need protection and warmth I bring a few pairs on the job.  Or you can purchase some hi-tech stuff that claims to be waterproof but a I know of none that will stand up to be a true work glove.    When I think of work boot I'm thinking leather.   I use Sno-Seal.  It stands up to a hard day on the job and Will keep your feet dry.  Being a wax base dirt will stick to it in warmer temps but bring on the cooler temps and it shines.   You could get a boot like Mucks but they will not hold up like a leather work boot.  So it depends on what type of work I guess.

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.
