Where to camp - Help!

Recommended Posts

In August I am making my first trip to the area with my two sons. We are renting a houseboat and would like any information on recommended sites to make our homebase. We are looking for something that is away from major boat traffic areas, but also near good fishing spots. Also, is the fishing still good in August? Any suggestions for this first time visitor?

Thanks,

If you are going to be on Kabetogama, I would suggest the houseboat tie-up on the the south side of Yoder Island. It is at the mouth of Lost Bay which can have some great August fishing and is my favorit place on the lake to fish.

My other suggestion would be the north side of Sugarbush Island. The tie-up area there has a decent beach and you are convenient to good fishing around Pincherry, Donut, Yewbush and Cutover Islands as well as Slatinksky Bay.
