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!

      Drove all the way up to grindstone this morning from Forest Lake. As I'm driving along the shoreline, I can't stop admiring how beautiful of a day it is, and how great it will be to be on the water. Was totally amped up to fish for some trout! Then I pull up to the boat launch...and it's closed down! :mad: This dredging project has been pushed back for years, then they finally decide to do it on a beautiful sunny day, that I picked to come here...on the last day of the lake trout season nonetheless! Needless to say, I was very upset! 

      Could have throw a line off the south shore since you were all the way up there. :(

      Hey guys thanks for the tips.  What you are saying really makes sense.  I have been working on these items this week, not expecting a completely changed dog out there but looking forward to continued exercises this weekend out in the blind.

      I bet the state, not the political cronies, would get a lot more money by having the auction on the internet or allowing phone bids.  Heck, put them on the bay of E. 

      Actually DMV and DNR do quite well at their auctions. You win bid, You Pay, You own. No red tape, no collection process, simple and things seem to sell for quite a bit of money. Go and one see for yourself, its quite amazing. Lots of them at the Arden Hills DMV. Hard to collect money over the phone and on the internet. I do believe they will use the same auction process for this property sale as the DMV and DNR are good at it and a lot of buyers will be there. If the internet were to be used, the "political cronies" would need to create a bill, Ear Mark several million to develop a site, create an app, hire 40 to 50 people to manage and than increase taxes to cover the cost much like Obama Care Not a good plan. If your interested, go to auction, bring lots of money, win a bid and own.

      2016 MN auction schedule if your interested in going to one.

      They were dredging there today. Not sure if they are done or if it will take longer.
