Typically the USFS camp-sites get all swallowed up by "locals" or whom-ever a week before opener. They pitch a tent or leave a car, they PAY but do not stay.....

I gave up trying to find a camp site even on Thursday before opener...

If the state forests are full, give Nodak Resort a try. I know they have some camp sites and everything you need to fish.

Last I heard you have to occupy the camp site the first 24 hours or forfeit the site to someone else. Be it you pay or not.

You're in luck!! We just had a cancellation - we have an opening in one of our lodge fishhouses/rv trailers!! They are parked on the lake side - all set up (the big red trailer pictured in the ad on the top of this page). If you have any interest give us a call. Looks like it is going to be a great 2007 opener!! Nice weather forecasted. Water temps are climbing. Shiners are moving and the lake level is slightly higher than mid-summer levels. So we are in good shape for access.

If you want to still use a tent Cutfoot Sioux Inn has campsites also.

      I have also worried about the quality of the bite...and the absence of perch. At least on the northwest side, anyways, where we almost never mark small perch anymore.  In years past, the best indicator of a soon-to-be big red mark on the Vex was that the small perch vacated the area.  I did see TONS of perch down on the south side this year, but I don't know how the numbers there compared to years past, either.   But yeah, the bite has been excellent for, what, three years now?  We're also catching a decent mix of fish (though of course most are from the 2013 year class).  The only good thing to mention, at least in my experience, is that the fish do look very healthy and fat, very unlike the fish during the "boom years" in the mid-2000's when everything you'd catch would be a skinny 26 incher.

      Bite has been non existent for us this weekend for pike...we fished out of springsteel yesterday one flag. We are out of warroad and no flags yet... We tried as shallow as 4ft, out in 11ft now.

      When I was a kid, I used to ask my dad to take me ice fishing--he would always say "wait 'till it gets warmer"......
