Winter Canvas or Army Tent Rental

13 posts in this topic

Anyone know in Duluth, Ely, or elsewhere where I could rent a Canvas Wall Tent or Army Tent, that I could use my personal wood Stove in????

I would be willing to rent a wood stove if mine was too big.

Any Info is appreciated!

Thanks.

Mark

There is a new company in Duluth that rents canvas tents and stoves for cold weather camping. Whitewater outfitters I think it's called. You might contact Hartley Nature Center as this group has been part of their winter festival in the past and they can probably find you contact information. After spending some cold nights in an unheated nylon tent last Winter on Big Knife I swore that this winter I'll rent or buy a canvas tent with a stove for my next Lake Trout foray.

I met someone using a rental stove and tent this weekend. They rented it from a place called Whitewood. They're on Central Hill. Hope this helps.

I hope I didn't send you on a merry chase with the wrong name of the outfitter. Whitewood might be the right one. It might be worthwhile to check with outfitters in Ely if you aren't having any luck. Piragis comes to mind as a company that could at least steer you to someone with canvas tent rentals. When we were skiing out last winter I think one of the parties we ran into said that Piragis might rent winter tents/stoves. Good luck

Check out Snowtrekker. They're out of Solon Springs, WI. They make "traditional" winter camping tents out of canvas, made to be used with wood stoves. I don't know if they rent 'em, but I've heard rumors there might be a company around Duluth that does rent out their tents. Might be worthwhile to get in touch with the Snowtrekker folks and see what you can find out.

Piragis in Ely rents them. I called on one last week. Just ask for someone in winter outfitting.

I'd like to thank everyone on here for their input, except miss moose, oops, I mean monstermoose. Just kiddin Man. wink.gif

This goes to show how well this forum is working.

Counting down the days. Only 45 days left in Yellowstone, then off for two months.

That will be two months of fishing, hopefully.

I just saw an ad in the St. Cloud paper for a 10 x 10 black canvas wall tent w/floor and military stove jack. I can send you the contact info if you're interested.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.

      Sorry I had to edit your title.  I've been hearing some people are upset about the change.  But I also heard there were some positives about it too.  I can't say anything one way or the other since I'm not affected.

        It does have lakers but I think they closed it for harvest.  I thought I read it was due to those lakers being a different strain and getting fished down a little too much.   That laker Rob caught was a hawg!  Too bad he got it taken away.

      The fact that ppl have to reserve a campsite is absolute BS. The only thing the park accomplished by making ppl reserve campsites is lowering the amount of ppl who visit the park.

      Ive had the same issue.  I turned both the motor and remote of for 30 seconds or so and then worked fine.  it has happened twice for me.  Hope its not reoccurring which would be very annoying.  For the cost,  this stuff should work.  I wonder if they are I-link motors?  Mine is.

      How has the bite been this weekend?  Not able to fish this weekend due to graduations.  Shiners still working?

      Lengths were a little tough to figure out without stressing the fish.  My board only goes to 24 and that wasn't enough.   I did tare my digital scale with the hoop of my rubber net and weighed em in that.  One was 6; the other 8.4.  I had another 24 incher earlier in the day but didn't weigh it.   We got 1 pike and severa smallies too but let everything go since fish wasn't on the menu this weekend.
