Elba area campground ???????

8 posts in this topic

I have been racking my brain and cannot figure this out so I thought I would see if anyone else knows. Back in the days... Me and some friends would go to a free camp area. Here are the directions somewhat:

Head down 14 to St Charles, head towards Whitewater and drive right thru Elba(After a quick stop at Johnnys) keep following the road that turns to gravel out of Elba until you come to a blacktop road w/stop sign. Take a right and the road curves around for a while and you will come to a spot where the road somewhat V's. I think there used to be an old schoolhouse or something there?? Take the left in the V and head down a gravel road for a few miles and there is an open area in the woods with a cement restroom and if I remember right there are people that would come out and do some horseback riding??

Kind of long winded here but does anyone know the name of this place? I know the DNR would come out there once in a while so it has some name I am sure?? I had many a good times here and was thinking about camping there again if it is still open?? THANKS!!!! E

Trout Valley? If you take a left at the Y does it wind down hill and go by a round barn?

Has to be Trout Valley, what you explained is going north on highway 74 up towards Weaver, and that would eventually put you up around trout valley.

I am new to this site, but I believe there is also a campground down by Elba called Lazy D????? Could that be the one you are referring to?

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
