Well it has been quiet a few years since I have stayed there. Nice quaint cabins kept clean. Lodge is nice and Kris is a great host (I believe she still runs it, hear she may have moved south). I was usually up in spring for the river so business was slow and not alot of people. The only complaint that I have had is, I was not happy with the Ice house rental we had about 5 years ago, But it's been a long time and We where the first people in thier house that winter so thing are probably better now. My in-laws rented a charter thru them 3 summers ago and had a blast the captian was great they said.

I would not hesitate going back in future.

Awesome place. I found them through Fishing Minnesota and booked three days with them in January and caught real nice fish. This was the first time I have ever been to lake of the woods and I am addicted. I am scheduled to go next Sunday through Tuesday by my self and cant explain how excited I am. There cabins are first rate and the people including the guides are fantastic. I would recommend fishing during the day and staying at the resort at night. LOW is not a very good night bite lake.

Hey Ralph aren't you staying at Riverbend not Riverview? They aren't the same just letting you know.

euorlarva: I too was sure that you were at Riverbend, not Riverview in January. I do know that you're headed to Riverbend next week. Bill

We stayed at riverview for 4 days 3 nights in december and had a great time. Great cabins, awesome bar with great food and stiff drinks, and a handfull of guides that had us on top of fish the entire time we were there. Between 8 guys we caught around 70-80 fish in one weekend including a 25", 27" walter, and a ton of good eaters. I would definetly recommend riverview resort for a good time.

      It's been dredged to 4'. The lake still has a sandbar. He did not dredge past the creek mouth

      Drove all the way up to grindstone this morning from Forest Lake. As I'm driving along the shoreline, I can't stop admiring how beautiful of a day it is, and how great it will be to be on the water. Was totally amped up to fish for some trout! Then I pull up to the boat launch...and it's closed down! :mad: This dredging project has been pushed back for years, then they finally decide to do it on a beautiful sunny day, that I picked to come here...on the last day of the lake trout season nonetheless! Needless to say, I was very upset! 

      Could have throw a line off the south shore since you were all the way up there. :(

      Hey guys thanks for the tips.  What you are saying really makes sense.  I have been working on these items this week, not expecting a completely changed dog out there but looking forward to continued exercises this weekend out in the blind.

      I bet the state, not the political cronies, would get a lot more money by having the auction on the internet or allowing phone bids.  Heck, put them on the bay of E. 

      Actually DMV and DNR do quite well at their auctions. You win bid, You Pay, You own. No red tape, no collection process, simple and things seem to sell for quite a bit of money. Go and one see for yourself, its quite amazing. Lots of them at the Arden Hills DMV. Hard to collect money over the phone and on the internet. I do believe they will use the same auction process for this property sale as the DMV and DNR are good at it and a lot of buyers will be there. If the internet were to be used, the "political cronies" would need to create a bill, Ear Mark several million to develop a site, create an app, hire 40 to 50 people to manage and than increase taxes to cover the cost much like Obama Care Not a good plan. If your interested, go to auction, bring lots of money, win a bid and own.

      2016 MN auction schedule if your interested in going to one.

      They were dredging there today. Not sure if they are done or if it will take longer.
