Tumbleweed,

I grew up going to a place called Beacon Shores Resort on Lower Whitefish. It is a wonderful place to stay. Plenty of different size cabins to accomodate the size of your family. I have not been back as a guest for a number of years but have stopped in to visit a few times in the last year. Everything was still as I remembered. I have been trying to convince the wife that we need to vacation there as I had so much fun in years past.

I met a guy on Crosslake while up there ice fishing. He has two cabins on the lake that he rents privately. I can get you the phone number if you would like. I think the big cabin (lake home, not cabin) is about $1500 per week, and the small one (more rustic) is $500 per week. Has dock on nice part of the lake. Nice swimming and fishing right there. The big cabin VERY NICE. Not sure of the availablity, but thought I would mention it. I don't know him, just got the info for family members, as I have cabin up there, but not on chain. Let me know and if interested your email, and I can send you the number.

Beacon Shores is one, another is Driftwood Resort on the NW side of the big lake.

Also, try for something on Hay Lake, it might be cheaper.

If you don't mind camping,(tent or trailer) try the Crosslake Corp. of Eng. camp ground in Crosslake...nice camp ground with elctric showers, everything.

I think there is another resort on Big Trout lake in Manhatten Beach.

Good Luck!

The Crosslake Campground is A1 in my book. Stayed there tons. Only problem is getting a reservation. Most sites will be booked by now for that date. But definitely worth a try if camping is an option.

I have stayed at Tip Top resort on Clamshell lake for years and I highly recommend that resort. They also have a nice sand beach if you are bringing the kids. I have always thought there rates were very reasonable also.

I was at the Cross campground last year, June.

Thought that I heard some talk about shutting it down, along with some other corp. campgrounds due to funding.

Has anyone heard any word on if that is true?

Believe they even had something posted at the gate.?

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
