You will all love it!

Have camped three years up there now, with and without kids. There is a campground(Woodenfrog) on lake with nice sites,H2O, no showers but we have used Arrowhead Resort showers when dip in the lake just was not enough.(Nice for us women!) Anything you need you can get at Gateway Store as you turn into Kab road. Just ask Phil, a plethora of info, regarding bait, bites, rules, etc. etc. Just bring a 55 gal. drum of bug spray. With all of the rain they have had we all just might use it..But you live in Mn. so you know that. If island camping is on you agenda, it's first come first serve, no fee, just stop at Kab. Center to register. They also will answer any rookie ?/s. you have. Boat launch is free, right next to Arrowhead and Woodenfrog, or you can put in at Ash River, also real nice. Free parking. WE bring wood for fires, but you can buy also at Gateway, actually there is very little you cant buy there. He is real well equipped. You need a map of Island Campsites(from Kab Center) and a map of Lake. Other than that just have fun...When are you going up?

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will collect and analyze water samples from about 90 wells in Washington County this spring. The data are being collected for the Washington County Geologic Atlas, an effort involving the Minnesota Geological Survey and the DNR’s Ecological and Water Resources Division.  DNR staff will contact county residents to request permission for well sampling, which involves collecting a water sample and measuring the depth to water in each well. Tests will profile the general chemical characteristics of area groundwater and will also show approximately how long the water has been underground. Geology, location, well depth and well construction will determine the selection of wells for sampling. Owners of sampled wells will receive a report of the laboratory results for the water sample collected from their well. Preserving the long-term quality of the region’s surface water and groundwater requires that policymakers have access to accurate information based on sound scientific principles. A county geologic atlas is a valuable tool for county planners, resource managers and other local government staff when making general planning, land use management and water resource protection decisions. The Minnesota Geological Survey has already published Part A of the atlas, which illustrates details of each county’s geology. In 2019, the DNR will publish the groundwater portion of the atlas (Part B). The Part B reports will include maps and descriptions of the distribution and movement of groundwater, cross sections illustrating groundwater conditions, and the pollution sensitivity of aquifers in the county. The DNR County Geologic Atlas program is funded in part by the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund as recommended by the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources. Funding also comes from the Clean Water Fund, which receives 33 percent of the sales tax revenue from the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment approved by voters in November 2008. A full description of this DNR program and status reports for atlas products is available on the DNR website. For information, contact: Jim Berg, DNR hydrogeologist, 651-259-5680, jim.a.berg@state.mn.us; or Paul Putzier, DNR county geologic atlas program supervisor, 651-259-5692, paul.putzier@state.mn.us.
