When I was looking for a campground a couple of years ago, there was a small camping area on 108 between North and South Lida. It's down the road from Maple Beach and before the tunnel and boat ramp on South Lida. I believe the name of the people that owned the place was Hansen's. Cliffy might know as he lives near the area. confused.gif

You may be thinking of Jerry Swanson. The have a little campground and they love doing the party/camp fire thing with their guests. Very cool couple.

Yup, the Swanson's (Jerry and Cindy...if I remember correctly) have that little campground...family friends with my parents...very nice couple. I drive by the place everytime I go and visit my parents...they always have the campfire going...seems like everyone is having a good time.

I'm not positive but I think Crosspoint hosted a bass tourney quite a few years ago (let us take-off/weigh in there )but I thought it was on North Lida am I wrong ??? The resort I'm thinking of was an established one and had links to it on Ottertail Country (Contact Us Please) but no longer...maybe it went the way of many resorts as of lately frown.gif

    • Hello Friends:

      Looking for some help as I've been up here since yesterday morning and only two 22" walleyes. I've fished fairly hard (5 or 6 hours) and tried all of my normal spots in Frazer/Smarts/Narrows area using all presentations with minnows and crawlers. Would love to have a walleye dinner (couple of 15's) for my black lab and I tomorrow night and any suggestions would be welcomed.

      I'm not looking for spots, but general depth and bait.

      Thanks guys

      Andy

      It is great.  I don't know if they are still doing grumpy gary chicken this time of year but it is good.  They have specials on various nights, at least in summer.

      Dennis Anderson, Outdoor writer for the Minneapolis Tribune had a nice write up on the duck opener at Pelican. In addition there were some locals quoted on duck hunting there. Sounds like the ducks are back, and they have the water levels well under control.

    • Thanks Don! its a good time of year to be on the water!! :)

      Oh man, I forgot about the South Switch. I haven't been there in close to fifteen years. I doubt that it's changed.....maybe I'll head there tomorrow night!

    • Not lately but a buddy got 3 in big fork yesterday... No dog just him walking

      Prices a little high there too....   Come on down to the switch or the crescent.  

      Didn't Bayview try the upscale dining thing a few years ago?

      Where are all the Duck reports from the almighty Pelican? 

      Did all this rain fill the lake back up?  I haven't driven by at all. 

      I bet the crappies and gills are growing nicely.   Soon enough.
