RV and a Landing Lot?

12 posts in this topic

Does anyone know if you can legally stay overnight in a public landing parking lot if you are in an RV? I am not planning on doing it myself, I am just posting this for someone else?

Actually I have no idea! My brother called me today and said that he and a buddy will be coming up from the cities next weekend with a 30 ft RV and a new boat. He wanted to know If I was aware of whether or not they could stay overnight in a lot. I only live 30 minutes from mille lacs, so I truly am asking for him on this one. I know it sounds a little sketchy, but it is on the up and up. grin.gif

Nope no way no how the access is not a public campground and if your boat is on the trailer behind your rig you can expect the CO. to come a knocking especially on opening weekend

CA,

Camping overnight at a Public Access is a big no no. There are signs all over that clearly state No overnight camping.

Shoot me an e-mail. I'm sure that we can work out a solution for them.

Paul is 100% correct!!!! Signs are posted for sure at the malmo public accesses, as well as others.

It is illegal at State DNR owned landings. I don't know about City landings... I'm sure it's up to each City, but I can't imagine any allowing camping either.

Thanks for the replies guys, I'll relay the message to him. I have seen signs at various landings that stated no camping, but I figured that it was dealing with tents.

The casino would be worth a shot. The one in Hinkley and, I believe Cloquet, allow overnight RVs in their lot. Also, check to see if the State Park is full or not. When calling the casino I would ask how to join the players club and "Can you really gamble all night?"

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.

      The walleye bite the past couple days has gone from Boom to  almost Bust! There have been a couple of huge May fly hatches the last couple of nights along with a large Rusty Crayfish molt that have been making catching walleyes a real challenge! We are still getting some fish but now have to earn every fish! Lindys with 1/2 crawler fished VERY slow in 18" to 30" depths has been my best presentation. Cliff

      Thanks guys!  We tried kayak fishing last year (around Labor Day I think) and the Rum was way too high.  We launched on CR 7 between Blue and Green lake and just ended up paddling the river.  Is that a good stretch for smallies?
    • ANYFISH2
      wow, that is one dark walleye!

      And no reports make forums no good. Participation is what makes this place great.   Do not discourage that!
