camping and fishing on Kab

As I read the information on the website, it's first-come for campsites on Kabetogama. Is a permit required? Are weekends and holiday weekends especially jammed? Any other advice for a first-time visitor?

No permits required.

If fishing for the weekend, I always try to go up Thurs. or Fri. to get a good site.

Stop off at the visitors center to get a map of the lake with the official campsites.

Remember, if worse comes to worse and you can't get an official site, camping is allowed anywhere as long as your not cutting trees and stuff to create the campsite.

If you are thinking about going over Labor Day you should probably be OK. Most of the schools are starting back before Labor Day so the traffic may be way down this year.

Hey Ice...
Permits ARE required as of last year, and it's a $50 fine if you don't fill one out and bring with you.
The permits are FREE, and very easy...I think the Park is trying to gain a better number of campers and how they are getting out their (canoe, or boat) than in years past. You simply fill out the form at any of the entrance points in the park.

Enjoy...once you've come up here there no going anywhere else (bewarned)

Just returned from Kab. Tried to camp on Camelback Island but a bear trashed our site and spooked us off the island. Plenty of campsites open but it was not a holiday weekend. Apparently the campsites on Cutover are closed due to nusiance bears. Keep everything in the lockers or hung up. We had paper products in our tent and it was trashed. We will go back but bring less stuff and pack smarter! Thanks to the folks at Arrowhead Lodge for taking us in on no notice.

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.
