Ash River Snowmobile Visit Recommendations

Recommended Posts

lureman

We are visiting the Ash River area this coming weekend for snowmobiling. Looking for any recommendations on must see/ride trails and any good places to grab a mid-day lunch or evening supper. We will be lodging at a resort on Ash River so that will be our headquarters.

Any trail reports would also be appreciated. it is terrible cold here in the Northwest hopefully we can get back to more normal temps.

Thanks!

lureman,

Trail conditions in and around the Ash River/Kabetogama/Voyageurs Nat'l Park area continue to be excellent. Groomers have been able to get to the portages and all land trails are in great condition!

All lake trails are marked and staked. Lake running has become great w/ snow and cold temps the past week.

President's weekend is shaping up to be awesome. Local snowmo club has a medallion hunt starting on Feb. 13 thru the 17th. Ash River-Kabetogama Snowdrifters.

Check out ALL area trail conditions (Arrowhead, Voyageur Trail ((Ash River/Kabetogama)), Int'l. Falls, Crane Lake and Voyageurs Nat'l Park at the club web site too.

Are you tired of ditch bangin' in Hallock? I spent 22 years there doing that! This is God's country up here! You'll love it!

LET IT SNOW!

We will be up this weekend for a putt. Looking forward to seeing our friends up north. I was thinking about trying some hard water fishing but I know the wife is gonna want to ride so we will be leaving to fishing gear home. Probably will go to the Ledge for a burger and a sodapop Saturday night. Giddy up!

lureman - places to see...Grassy Bay Cliffs are pretty cool. Kettle Falls is another great place to see - especially in the winter. Not sure if they have groomed that way or not tho. What you'll really love up here will be the beauty of the lakes and what an awesome land trail system we have. Lots of loops - head out one way and come home a different way!

Lunch - Rocky Ledge, Lure Me Inn, Kec's Kove, Sandy Point, Arrrowhead Lodge (all on Kab). Gateway Store (US 53 at Kab corner) for a quick rolla dog, a soda and some gas - sorry - gasoline. Woodland Inn @ Ray, Lu's @ Ericsburg, Thunderbird & Island View on Rainy, Melgeorges on Elephant Lake, Norway Point on Pelican Lake, just to name a few.

Amen to ditch bangin. The darn wind has blown so hard this winter the little snow we have is in drifts as hard as curb stops. Cross country riding is difficult the prarie fields look like a flat land mogul coarse!

We all look forward to the Ash River visit will be riding Saturday-Monday. Hopefully things warm up a bit as we don't want to freeze the ladies up! Appreciate the listings on places to see and refresh!!

I see you spent a few years here in God's Country, I came to Hallock in 1987. The prarie grows on a guy but a visit to the big wood is hard to beat.

lureman,

I arrived in Hallock kicking and screaming in 1959 at the local hospital. Finally left the area (not kicking and screaming) in '82. Been a resident tourist of Kab since '77 and permanent resident since 2004.

Where are you staying on the trail? Would like to say HI and see what you think about the area. Just tell me your resort and first name and I may hunt you down.

One trip here (Hallock to Kabetogama 218 miles) and you'll never wanna ditch bang or run the Red again!

If I don't see ya, have a great vacation in the area!

LET IT SNOW

We plan on coming up friday after work. Will stop and top off the tanks with some premium at the Gateway store and then settle in for the night. Really looking forward to the weekend. snowmobiling Sat and making 2x8's with Greg on sunday before I go home. Planning on building a 12 x 30 woodshop in the pole barn and a 12 x 12 garden shed in the back yard for Kathy. Do you think Sam will want to go snowmobiling? I can only imagine!

I hate all you guys. ;\) Kidding! Some friends are staying at Ash Ka Nam this weekend and I have to miss the trip this year. cry.gif Oh the trials and tribulations of family life. I keep telling myself next year, next year.

Have a great time everyone. My friends are bringing their kids with for their first real snowmobile trip. I can't think of a better place for it.

      That's what I want to hear. Thank you sir
    • monstermoose78
      It’s still a blast to fish
    • Alex wilhelmi
      thank you tom sawyer good to know,
    • Tom Sawyer
      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys
    • Wanderer
      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.
    • Sculpin
      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack
    • Jim Almquist
      Tried to buy it last Friday and they were not available. System was down/messed up
    • eyeguy 54
