Vermillion 1st Timer

8 posts in this topic

I'm thinking about heading up to vermillion for a weekend in august. I'd like to get some info on campgrounds mostly, but also, I have a small boat (14 footer, 7.5 HP motor) so I'm not looking to cover any big water...so any info on good bass locations with least amounts of boat traffic would be great too. Any info at all would be great...thanks in advance.

JB,

Shoot me an email, and I will give you some help with campgrounds and good bass locations.

I would prefer a state owned campground, but any resorts that have campgrounds are fine too. Goldglover81@yahoo.com. Thanks for the help.

JB,

I tried to send you an email, but it didn't go through. Not sure what's up, but you can either email me directly or call too. Got some information that I think will help you...

IF you are up for camping on an island, you can go in at the public access at Timbuktu and head to the east side of Hinsdale Island. Several nice state campsites in Smartz Bay and no big water to go thru.

There are other lakes in the area that you could go to. Bear Head State Park is just a little further down the road. That has bass fishing and several other species. A couple of decent sized lakes and a few smaller ones. That may be something to consider.

Can someone explain why I got (Contact Us Please) for the word "State"?

Tim, hmmm, I wonder why it didn't go through...it didn't say it was the wrong address did it? Oh well, yeah, I can e-mail you first and hopefully that'll work. What's the addy?

I have no problem camping on an island. The problem with that is I wouldn't be getting up there til night time. Don't know if I want to be boating around on an unfamiliar lake looking for an island. I'm deadset on fishing vermillion, so a nearby campground is an option, but definitely a last resort. I appreciate the help so far, I'm sure we're gonna figure something out.

Look on a map and you will see that from the Timbuktu landing to the campsites on the east side of Hinsdale is a very easy find. You shouldn't have nay trouble unless someone was already at those sites.

      If a stream is non-navigable but has been meandered, the shoreland owners own to the thread (centerline) of the stream. If a lake or stream is non-navigable and not meandered, ownership of the bed is as indicated on individual property deeds    its sad that just a few bad apples can ruin it for the rest of us,

      That would be unfortunate if it was shut down. But I wouldn't blame the property owners if they did, as I wouldn't like my property getting trashed either. My oldest daughter, and son, both caught their first rainbow trout out of there 2 years ago, and it's always a must stop on our way to Grand Marais. How is it possible that the river itself is private property?

      For anyone that's interested, the docks were not in on the east side of Island as of Saturday. It was nice to see the lake a little higher than it normally is this time of year but the water was still way too cold for much crappie action - at least where I was fishing. Lots of logs and debris floating around in the middle of the lake so pay attention out there!

      thanks everyone for the input, we have decided to drive and take our own kayaks for the convenience. plus we can carry more tackle.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!
