Ely area camping next week 8/24-2

5 posts in this topic

Hello all- Have always gone to Kab area in past, tent camp, and need some advice on your area for next week. Not going into BWCA to fish, would like some ideas for camping, fishing from canoe or small hp boat (to rent and where) and general smaller lakes for camp/fish . Not bringing our boat this time up. I'm the little woman so not big on areas with known bears coming into camp every day. Thanks F10

Fiesty:

Try the Lodge of Whispering Pines on Big Lake. The lake is north of Ely on the Echo trail. They have a few campsites that are right on the water's edge.

Last time we camped there, we had no problems with bears coming into camp at night, but that might have changed. They were running dog sleds and the dogs were more than likely keeping them away.

Nice drive up to the lodge, very peacefull, they have canoes or boats to rent also.

Big Lake is a beautiful location. I'm in and out of there all the time photographing.

Thanks, just worried that the jazz festival might make getting a site difficult that close. Any ideas on where we can rent a small fish boat with motor. Love the Bears, just not as midnight guests, but will have our Irish Setter with us this time, she's been soooo goood all summer and needs a break. More worried about her reaction and barking at them. F10

You should be able to rent those from either of the resorts on Big Lake.

      I've been scouting public land like crazy to find some spots for upcoming archery and the spring turkey season and haven't found a shed yet. I even ventured into a sure bedding area hoping I'd see one in there and no dice.    It shouldn't be too much longer.

      No one else getting concerned with the Wild's lack of intensity??? darn good when they want to be and awful mediocre when not buzzing....... Been a long time since I watched them play 3 full periods of real hockey.....

      Just looked at the harbor cam in canal park and looked like there was two guys out fishing from the pier. Now that the gates are open I would say that's what they were doing. Feel free to share any reports you have or would like to share. Good luck all!

      I grew up in this area and if walk in a ways  you can be all by yourself. Best time deer hunting can be during duck season when people are moving the deer.
