Good question...my wife and my opinions differ. So I guess I 'll tell you what the wife wants as she always gets her way.

#1 (to her) outdoor pool

#2 Somewhat private

#3 Other campers who love to fish and are ready to throw afew

back afterwards.

#4 Dock access

#5 Bathroom and shower room would be nice. We have one in our

camper, it (bathroom) is small, I am not.

You should check out Little Winnie Resort, it's not on da String but is a short drive away to the lake as well as many other good lakes in the area. They have an outdoor heated pool, dock access to Little Winnie/Miss River, and will be plenty of people around to throw a few back/[PoorWordUsage] after dark.

I have looked at Little Winnie looks good. I actually fish Winnie more than Bowstring just checking my options out. Looking very seriously at Highbanks Resort also...seem like great people. Whatever we decide it will be great to be in God's Country!

Hey Jake, I had not heard that Rocky Shores had new owners? For what it is worth the next resort down the lake, Bowstring Shores has new owners as of last Thursday.

Another resort that fits your "wants" could be Cedar Point on NorthStar lake. Good people, Good location.

Thanks Jake, have thought about it several times but the continued tightening of zoning ordinances and tightening of legal docking issues make it a tough venture. Our expansion of 10 new cabins last year ate up most of our allowable density. Now we play the waiting game to try and acquire adjoining land. We shall see......maybe some time soon.

      Lots of mayflies now.  Larvae were coming up two weeks ago and now good amounts of sheds on the water.  Fishing has been great for those willing to move around and find active fish.  Start looking to first reefs off islands and shorelines as fish are starting to move to them.  30ft for us was good. Leeches.  2-3ft snell.  Plain hook.  Caught quite a few yesterday.  Good size range.  Kabetogama

      Besides there's 3 nice ramps there. 1 on the west, 2 to the east of the bridge.

      Good pretty good. Went out from the northwest side I think Garrison. Made our way to eight mile was able to go full-throttle the majority of the way but when the waves got too big has lower down. My buddy went looking for a drift sock but couldn't find one so we used a five-gallon bucket which work fairly well glad we had at least that. Well we are drifting it was perfectly fine but a pain in the butt trying to motor back up through the big waves. Then after some time sitting out there I had enough of sitting on those big waves and told my buddy that we needed to get closer to shore. The right back was very slow going and wet. Started to get a little concerned when my bilge pump stopped working and the back of my boat started to fill up especially when I was finally able to give it more throttle man the back of the boat was full of water but we made it back I got a new bilge pump and everything was all good quite the experience but I'll be back there again with my boat. And good thing we had back when we did there was barely any gas left in the tank.

      We are headed out in yaks from st cloud to clearwater, with clearwater outfitters. Was looking for some posts about the river, looks like it will be a pretty nice float from your pics

      Got to cabin.  Water heater out, I think it is thermocouple.  Looking for someone to fix it, soon as possible.   I'm on west end and could use a suggestion.  I am going to call lakes gas too, see if they have anyone.
