Motels in area

5 posts in this topic

I plan on making a few trips to Vermillon in year. Is there any motels in the area that allows me to charge my boat batteries overnight.

I will be by myself so I don't want to send $130 a night at a resort. I could do the camping thing but charging my batteries would be a issue.

Thanks.

There's also a small motel at the west end in Cook, on the east side of US53 just as you enter town from the south. They have a few RV parking spots that never seem full, so likely you could get an electrical hookup with your room.

Try reserving a site with electric at McKinley park campground. I also believe there are some sites with electric at Wakemup Bay Campground. Also check Moccasin and Hoodoo Point (SP?) campgrounds.

I have camped at mckinley park and wakemup bay campgrounds, both are very nice.

I know at Wakenup Bay the caretaker allows you to plug in at the main house.

Camping and fishing is the best combo in my view, doen't give up on the idea.

      You can say that again.    I've only heard you can't stay in the same place for more than 2 weeks.  I've seen people camping on some way back forest service roads.  They didn't look like designated camp sites to me.   How long/how often do you plan to go?  Tent or camper?

      7/24/17     Got my son and one of my daughters out with Grandpa Smutka on Waconia this afternoon (I have football practice every morning this week). We targeted panfish alongside a weedy reef. Small jig spinners (1/8 ounce VMC Mooneye Jig with a #2jig spinner and a 2" Powerbait Minnow) slow rolled over the weed tops caught tons of crappies and a bonus bass. A 1/16 ounce jig with a 1" Power Grub suspended 4 feet below a slip float caught crappies and sunfish, Caught numbers and some nice ones--beautiful weather and great time for the kids spent with Dad and Grandpa. Good luck, take a kid fishing, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      I know back in the day, late 90's, people camped out along (approaches beside it)the forest road along Birch lake.  The road on the right, right before the dam on hwy 1 south of Ely.   I dont know all the legalities of thr forest there, they may or may not have been legal.
