I would check out the state forest campgrounds.

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.

      Me either but I have given a few a chance to be! Like the time one just opened our door up on LOW and stepped in at the same time as saying DNR. I did not see a badge and said where's your badge? He had a mini one inside his coat on his shirt!  We all laughed, showed him our lic's and fish and he went on his way!

      Had a wheelhouse rented out of Isle Saturday through Monday AM.  Went several places in search of shiners, they were hard to come by, so had a mix of suckers, rainbows and fatheads.   Was set up in 28' of water. 3 eye's total (2 in the 16" range and a 21.5").  Two came on rattle reel with a rainbow and plain hook, the other came on a bobber - same set-up.  Caught a few perch jigging.     Everything came on a whole minnow.  Nothing on heads, maggots, waxies etc.   Popped a bunch of holes in shallower water and got nothing on tip-ups or hole hopping.  Planned to go east of The Graveyard, but I thought I should get home before the ice storm hit.

      I'm sure it will be pretty slushy this weekend. But it will refreeze next week end. If the forecast is right anyway!

      I'm not really complaining, just sharing my experience.  And i never had any preconceived notion that all CO's were pricks, it just sucks that the one experience I had was far from pleasant.   One of my favorite shows is North Woods Law - the one where they follow the Maine DNR around.  Anyways,  not sure if they're just being nice because of the cameras, but they all seem like stand-up guys and are pretty good communicators.   I've always had respect for those guys and the work that they do.  All I would ask for in return is mutual respect and a simple "have a good day".
