6 posts in this topic

Heading up to LOW in a couple weeks and am considering a couple of resorts, anyone have an opinion on Ships Wheel? Cabins OK, in a good location for Spring fishing, etc?

Thank you!

I know the people at Ships Wheel and they seem like they are

hard working people who have learned the lake real well. I have

stayed there a couple of times and the cabins seem fine.

They are on the river upstream a ways. Remember everyone gets

on and off the lake in the same area. You have a bit of a ride

to get to the lake but nothing off putting.

You will have a good time.

Curt,

Thanks very much, we've stayed at Zipple before and did enjoy that. I think we will try "Ships" for the sake of trying something different.

i stayed there this winter for the first time and enjoyed my stay very much. very nice people and the cabins are nice for as cheap as they are. If you bring up a group of 6 or more people you can stay in the big cabins which looked very nice and are next to brand new.

Deerslayer! I did book with them for a stay in a couple of weeks. Looking forward to it!! Is it a long drive to their houses? I notice they are down the river a bit.

Thanks very much for your input!

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
