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?"

      How's the ice doing? I will be up with atvs on the west side next weekend. I see it's gonna be warm all week. Curious if there are still any guys out in pickups anywhere? How much ice are guys seeing?

       I was told as long as both seasons are Open( Archery and Firearm) and I have a valid license for each (Archery and Firearm) both can be in possession.  The regulation book is a reference. they ultimately go off statues. I email all my questions and ask for an answer from someone who can legally answer the question. What you are referring to in the regulation book is carrying a gun during archery seaon alone. Yes that is illegal without a CC.

      Good to know Don.  Everything is ahead of schedule.

      Fished the last couple of nights on smaller lakes in the area, walked out. The ice was pretty good still under a layer of mush. Any surface water is leaking through but the ice is holding up well for foot traffic. Trying to balance my time between maple trees and fishing now.

      We talked to a guy who did very well in 16 FOW by Frontier on Monday. Also heard from a group who did well near Birchdale (not sure on depth).  Our best luck was in 21-25 FOW
