CFS Primitive Campsites

5 posts in this topic

Talk amongst me and my buddies has already turned to the summer of 2007... In between the multiple weddings next year (One of which is my own) we're trying to work out a Fishing trip for us guys...

One thing that has come up is the primitive campsites around Cut Foot Sioux...

I'm wondering how one goes about reserving one of those sites (Or is it just first come, first serve?)

Also I'm wondering how many there are...

I'm aware of 4... (I've seen them while fishing the area, but have never physically been to one.)

1 on Battle Point... 1 on the North west corner of McAvity Bay (Sort of tucked up in the corner behind the point... And two relatively near each other on the shore opposite of McAvity Island...

Are there any others?

Has anyone stayed at any of these?

(Normally when I'm up I Camp at the Deer Lake Campgrounds, but I'm thinking about taking a more rustic approach next year.)

*Also... What's the deal with the primitives and bathroom facilities/waste disposal etc...

Thanks in advance!

If you go to reserve america (Contact Us Please) you can book campsites right from there. I've used it several times.

I know you can book the Deer Lake's and Seelye's (As I book through that site everytime... But can you really do the primitives as well?

I'll have to look into it...

Thanks...

I camp at West Seeleye Bay several times a year with a fishing buddy. He has a bug up his butt to try one of the primitive sites. We stopped and talked to a lady working in the Information Center about these sites. There are quite a number of them on the west shore of Mcavity Bay and a good number of them on Battle Point. Also some on the east shore of Mcavity. I think there are at least 20 to 30 sites. She told us they are first come first serve - she actually called a ranger cause she wasn't sure about this. She said the best place to put in is at Mosomo Point. They have parking for a lot of rigs. She said you may want to mention to the camphost at Mosomo Point campgrond that you are leaving your rig there and will be out camping at one of the primitive sites and he will check your rig every so often to make sure it is ok. My friend checked a couple of sites on the west side of Mcavity and said there was a trail from campsite to campsite and eventually he came across a crapper.

Good luck with the marriage and enjoy the camping!

      Just wondering why no more fishing reports/updates from lake of the woods tourism on this site? They still put one on LSF every week or so. On a side note was up to the lake last weekend for some maintenance to the cabin went for a walk down graceton beach toward zipple. Lots of debris on shore from melting ice. Picked up what we could, lots left.

      I echo Spearing Machine's comment- Ludlows is a top notch resort. Terrific staff, nice accommodations, and provides a great experience for any staying. Our cabin isn't too far from there and we have family members who stay there often when we run out of space at the cabin and I have stayed there myself as well.

      Thanks man, I am really looking forward to deer season now that I'm going to bow hunt.  I have his duck duck goose book and its great. I commonly pluck ducks and geese so i can use that delicious fat.    In that book he had a recipe for duck wing soup and I changed it slightly and made a giant pot of soup with the turkey legs and thighs. It was delicious!

      Well this was fun! I fished a NE metro lake Saturday morning. Found tons of crappies in 4 to 5 feet of water. Water temps around 54 degrees. They were getting demolished by pike in the shallows, what a spectacular show they put on!    Couldn't find a crappie bigger than 8 inches so none were kept then this pike came along. It took about 7 minutes to fight with such light tackle and I thought for sure I'd lose it. I'm a kayak angler so this got really exciting! If the jig didnt set right at the corner of it's mouth of course the line would cut immediately but this still took a lot of careful fighting.    Can't wait for the season to start in a few weeks!!
