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?"

      Don't beat yourself up over it at all. I moved several times and you still caught more than I did. Looking forward to this weekend's weather, will not even need a shelter to check depths and move around..... Fingers crossed, I haven't found fish all year. Sure am amazed at the wheelhouses though, absolutely mind numbing the #'s...

      Fished Cannon lake this evening. I bounced around from 12-5ft of water and started to mark fish in 8ft so I set up there until dark. I saw a bunch of fish come in for a look but not one nibble. Tried every color and style spoon and jig I had but nothing.

      Best thing you can do if you won't be around is to put the house on fresh ice, don't drill any holes, and put it on blocks.  When people get into trouble is if it gets windy and they have open holes under the house, that rain starts blowing around on top of the ice, and starts swirling down into the holes under the house....that swirling water EATS ice, and can sink a house pretty quick.     As as far as the ice on the lakes, if you have 14-15 inches of good ice like most places around, you'll have no worries if you do what is posted above.
