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.

      Grubens did permits the 2016 season. Fortune bay stopped writing BWCA permits the end of the 2015 season. Sally retired and that ended the permits at the bay.  Some day we will be able to buy permits on line and print them.

      The video shown in the link posted above shows most of the fish they're handling going back because they're not ready or too green. The video was from 4/14 so I would bet they are done as that was 1 1/2 weeks ago. Cutfoot was done in less than a week. Cliff will be able to tell you for sure when then finished but I'd guess they were done by the end of last week.

      I took the boat out for a test run last weekend to a quiet little lake. Water temp was 54. This weather isn't going to help with the water temps.
