Hello,
We have stayed at Northern Lights resort 3 yrs ago and enjoyed it. Now we are planning our summer vacation this yr. I have checked all the resorts on Kab and know about the ones towards the visitor center from Northern lights but not going towards Echo Bay trail. Hoping you could suggest one or more. We're looking for private-not many cabins-nice beach for kids, would prefer no campgound or rv sites. I did e-mail kab website and they only suggested sandy point for the beach.
We're trying for something a little more
private. Any suggestions greatly appreciated. Thanks.

The best source of info is the Kab website, the best beach I know of at a resort on the West end is Tomahawk Resort, they do not have a bar or restaraunt so I believe its fairly quiet there. LOL guts, <{{{{><

Thanks for your quick reply...Tomahawk does have best beach, but a little to open area for us. We're trying for other end of Kab...Wondering if you know anything about voy park lodge? I think we've narrowed it down to that,park point,rocky point and Moosehorn(although not keen on rv sites).
Once again, thanks...

Might I suggest a resort on Crane. Pine Point Lodge. It's about a mile ride by boat from the town of Crane (from right where Voyagaire Houseboats is). Secluded (no roads), clean & friendly. They have a lodge where you can get provisions, bait & boat/motor rentals. From Crane you can fish Sand Point, Little Vermillion, Namakan & Kabtogama (Crane is pretty good on its own).

I have been going to Moosehorn for 12-15 years. They have probably the nicest docks on the lake, except for the Park Service.<P>They also have a very nice sloping beach. They do have two RV sights that are not seasonal. The RV hilltop is very quite. They are fussy about who they let stay.<P>They do not have a bar or restaurant, so if you want to go out to eat you will have to travel. That is a plus or minus depending on your needs.<P>Good luck with whatever you decide as this is a VERY nice area!

Don't go to Rocky Pt!!!! I stayed there once, said it had a beach, but it was actually part of the boat ramp, with gasoline and dead minnows floating in it ,the place is not for families.The cabin we had was on a big rock and about everytime you went to the bathroom the septic tank backed up, they said try not to go to the bathroom to much! very first time i went to wash my hands i heard water dripping, i looked underneath , the drain pipe fell off, had to fix it myself, the furnace worked sometimes. For the money i paid i wound not stay here again, this was a few years back though unless things changed i would go somewhere else.

Thanks for the info on Rocky point. I think we've narrowed it down to 3...Park point-voyageur park lodge and moosehorn. If anyone knows about park point or voyageur park,drop a line otherwise we'll just try one and see how it goes...thanks again for all the replys--

Meeko,
I've stayed at several resorts on Kab and at Wooden Frog Campground, all are nice but my favorite was Deer Horn Resort. Great people, friendly willing to go out of their way to make sure you're having a good time and catching fish. Another thing I really liked about their resort was, when the weather was poor and the wind was really blowing we fished right off the dock and we caught lots of Sauger, Walleye and Northern. And to top it off the prices were easy to live with.

Ole

Meeko, How do I say this and remain politically correct? .... Voyager Park basically has no beach. They hauled in several loads of sand and had it placed next to the shore. They do have space for aprox 4-5 chairs if you want sit in the sand next to the water.

They also have marginal docks/breakwater. This would not be high on my list of places to stay.

I know the owner or Park Point through the owner of Moosehorn. They are friends. He seems like a nice guy. I do not know anything about his resort. Sorry that I can't give you any additional info on that resort

This June will be my 17th year staying at Park Point. I am 23 and have been going to Kabe since I was six on a family vaction and just love it. Park Point is usually a very nice quiet resort. The cabins have been remodeled over the years and offer a pleasant place to stay and nice view of the lake.

It offers a sand beach that can be nice depending on the water height(high water means most of the beach is covered). There is a paddle boat and a canoe available at no extra charge.

I've only stayed here and once at Kec's Kove in the fall on a all guys fishing trip. The only reason we chose Kec's Kove is because of the Resteraunt and Bar.

The owner's of Park Point are very friendly and I would recommend this resort to anyone. My family and I will be up the first week in June. Goodluck selecting a resort.

Rudy,
we like park point and it does offer bigger
cabins than moosehorn. It's hard to tell by
their web page the cabins layout is sketched, could you tell me is cabin 1 & 2 (3 bdrm cabins) about the same or which you would suggest. I think we'll be happy regardless but its nice get another viewpoint. We're heading up in mid Aug. Thanks again to all the replys....

OK, Good Luck!

I stayed at Northern Lights about 30 years ago. It has changed hands at least 3 times that I know of.

I did not want to say too much, because everyone has different needs. Moosehorn has a really nice beach and a number of water toys.

They also have a fair amount of space between cabins compared to most in the area. Of course it all depends on which cabin you end up in.

Let me know if/when you are going to be up there, maybe we can swap some fishing info?

When I was younger we stayed in cabin #1 for a few years and then later stayed in cabin #2. Personally I liked the layout of cabin #1 much better. It seems to offer more open space. Cabin #2 used to have bunk beds in one of the rooms(2 single beds as mentioned in the brochure). This is just what I remember, it has probably been almost 10 years since we stayed in one of those cabins--we have since moved down by the lake in cabins #5 and #6.

I will warn you that both of these cabins are up on a hill away from the boat docks(bait, gas and such) and require a slight hike to get back up to your cabin after fishing. But all in all not too bad. I hope you enjoy your stay at Park Point.

We've been staying at Snyder's Idlewild (and before that Whipple's Idlewild) most years since 1976. It is a very nice resort. One thing it has that I don't think anyone else on the lake has is a swimming pool. That works out real well when the water in the lake is too cold for swimming (early June can be cold). I would definitely recommend it.
Its located on the southwest corner of the lake.

      I drive by there 20-30 times per year on my way up north and always wondered what they all said.  Thanks for posting them.  With the warning sign "Danger No Trespass Injury Very Likely" and the barbwire fence around the signs, I would not enter his property if I worked for the US post office or UPS.

      We fished Wednesday afternoon.through Friday out of Zippel. It was not as cloudy as the weatherman predicted. Our best day ended up being Thursday. The two of us in our shack limited out by noon, most were sauger. Hot lure was a 1/8oz glow red shiner Tingler spoon and a plain red hook under a bobber. We were in 26ft

      Landowners can generate revenue by allowing public hunting on their private land in 46 Minnesota counties through the Department of Natural Resources Walk-In Access Program. Sign-ups are Monday, Jan. 22, to Friday, April 27.  “This program is a win-win for landowners and hunters,” said Scott Roemhildt, DNR Walk-In Access coordinator. “And what’s more, by signing up for three years, landowners can qualify for habitat enhancement on their Walk-In Access acres.” For Walk-In Access, eligible parcels must be at least 40 acres and covered by high quality natural vegetation. Landowners are paid by the acre to allow hunting access from Sept. 1 to May 31. Bonuses are paid on parcels that enroll in a three-year contract, are more than 140 acres and are located near a state wildlife management area or federal waterfowl production area. “This may be an opportune time for landowners to sign up for this program because there is some uncertainty about how it will be funded in the 2018 Farm Bill,” Roemhildt said. In a change this year, landowners who enroll in a three-year contract also may qualify for up to $20,000 in habitat enhancements on their land for prescribed burning, removing invasive trees and brush, or planting native species. Walk-In Access parcels are for public hunting only and no motorized vehicles are allowed on conservation land. Bright yellow-green signs identify area boundaries and parking is along roads or in designated parking areas. Recreational use laws provide extra liability protection for acres enrolled in Walk-In Access. Walk-In Access began in 2011 and has grown to more than 26,700 acres in 2017. The program is currently funded through 2018 with a three-year grant from the Natural Resources Conservation Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture, under number 69-3A75-16-509. Other funding comes through a surcharge on nonresident hunting licenses, a one-time appropriation from the Minnesota Legislature in 2012 and donations from hunters. Landowners should contact their local soil and water conservation district office for enrollment information. Details can be found at mndnr.gov/walkin. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Yea, the guys having issues with the k-drill/fuel combo are not claring out their ice shavings enough. I have had 0 issues with binding or overheating.  Have been drilling through ice that comes up to the foam the last three days.

      Possibly coming up in the next upcoming weekends. Is there any good areas this year that’s producing a decent bit I’ve heard it’s been pretty slow so far? I know last year there was a good crappie bite in halverston bay but ended up sticking close to the resort and got a few gills. Looking for eyes and crappies if no real good bite thinking of heading to the southwest and trying the gull area. Thanks

      I took those pictures probably seven or eight years ago. If I remember correctly I was heading up north solo, and decided like many others that I'd never fully read the spectacle and would capture it for posterity. I've never met or seen the guy, but I'm sure it would be an interesting time if you drank a few cold ones together. Speaking of Cotton, does anyone have a report on the El Toro lounge? I've always meant to stop in there but have yet to do so.

      Losing Sue is a great loss to the lake community and all of those that had a chance to interact with her. My young daughter has had to deal with a few close losses in our family this year/winter already, so she will be really sad to find out next spring that her favorite "ice cream lady' is no longer with us as well. Sue and Ron were always part of the experience of coming up north. Like many others I'm sure, my wife got corner by Sue last summer about how we needed to buy Moosebirds! I'll miss seeing Sue's smile each time we walk in the door to pick up some random forgotten item, for ice cream, or to find something "Moosebirds" to take home and support a good friend.

      Not sure how everyone else is drilling their holes with the k drill, but I have the 8" on a clam drill plate with the M18 fuel drill and don't have any problems with the drill overheating or the bit not cutting.  In 20" of ice, I clear the shavings 2 or 3 times during the cutting process and the drill cuts like a hot knife through butter.  Instructions on the k drill float are pretty clear that you should clear the shavings to prevent the drill from binding when cutting in thick ice.  Love my k drill!
