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

      I did that with tango and saw a world of difference ... I started at Sand Pines and they helped me tons. The kid brought me out kept all the pheasants caged and would plant one at a time in a easy spot where I could see where he planted. I would let tango out we would flush it shoot retrieve come back I would put him in the car and we did that 3 times. After that he then planted the rest of the ones I bought and we found all but one. Next spot I brought him was Golden Meadows and they were helpful as well I had them flag the general area the pheasants were planted. I went there a couple times and each time they used less flags and planted the birds farther away from the flags they did have out. Until the last time I went used no flags at all.

      As if there was any question...definitely be careful on those high current lakes.  I went through (walking) on Koetter tonight. Thankfully I only plunged one leg in to the hip and was able to scramble away.   Its a spot I have been a dozen times in the past few years.  I knew the ice got thinner in this area but was always passable and I followed a 4 wheeler or tank track and then a foot/sled path so I thought I would stay dry.  I was ON the path when I got wet.  Had picks around my neck and glad I did even if I didn't use them (happened SO fast).  The walk back to the car was more than a little nerve wracking.  Not sure I'll ever fish that spot again.  And in the future I wont be so trusting of other's tracks.  Spud on...   tg
