Location of cabins in park/Spring Tips

3 posts in this topic

Ok, I couldnt quite swing the yearly ice outing with my coworkers last week BUT there is still hope. We were able to reserve a camper cabin at the state park from June 1- June 5. The last (and only) time we tried open water was about the same time frame two or 3 years ago and the fishing was nothing short of phenomenal. At that time we camped and the cabins were being built I think. It was a little rainy and cool so a cabin will be nice. My question is, has anyone used the cabins and knows if they are on the river like the campsites so you can pull your boat up on shore overnight? The campground map doesnt show the cabins and the reservation by phone is through somewhere in Indiana (at least thats where my card was billed to) so they couldnt offer any info other than the campground map.

Man I cant wait! Either way we are still going. The wife HAD to grant a kitchen pass because her cousin from New Jersey wants to come out and experience mn fishing. ITS A DONE DEAL!!!!

Any info will be greatly appreciated. Any fishing tips will be appreciated as well.

Thanks

Had cabin #1 last year for opener. Boated over 600 walleyes in 10 days. If you anchor on the shoreline break and jig with minnow you can't miss. If your baot is moving you're going too fast. Cabins are across the road from river and south of the office. Cabin dock is across from cabin #1

So there is a dock for the cabins then. We boated over 300 eyes in 2.5 days. I still prefer the crappies and will cover as much water as I have to to search them out smile.gif

      My buddy has the 5 w/GPS. When you combine it with a lakemap chip it's a really sweet set-up for ice fishing as you can pinpoint spots on lakes and mark your location for the next time you're out.  I don't know anything about the sonar vs. flasher issue or if there is a slight delay. All I know is I want one.   Also, there are down imaging and side imaging versions available, and ones with and without GPS. Be sure you take that into consideration when you're shopping. I've gotten excited about some pretty good deals I've seen on the Helix 5, only to realize it doesn't have GPS. If you're going to use your for ice fishing I think you would want the GPS version.

      Whenever I want to take a kid out fishing and keep them entertained, then I always go to Kelly Dudley.  In the summer, it is impossible not to catch a steady stream of sunfish.  I have never tried it in the winter, but suspect it would be a good place to keep an eight year old busy.   If you go out, make absolutely sure to bring ice cleats.   There is an indoor fish camp going on in Faribault this weekend.  http://www.maxsolutionsonline.com/cityoffaribault/Customer/ActivityDetail.aspx

      Are you looking for this summer?   Are you looking for cabin type resorts, camping, tent/RV?   Here is a place to start:   http://business.parkrapids.com/list/category/resort-cabin-327   I live in the area so haven't spent to much time at different resorts but I've always liked R&D Resort on Straight Lake in Osage, MN which is only 8 miles from Park Rapids. Isle O' Dreams is another very cool place to stay.

      Lots of water on the ice now where people have their houses. Took my house off yesterday and the plowed roads were pretty slushy already.
