RV and a Landing Lot?

Recommended Posts

CrappieAttitude

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?"

      Man you can really see the standards of this site of have dropped.  A few years ago we were talking over $80-$100 Thorne Brothers Custom made Ice Rods.  Now a $9.99 dollar rod is the talk for the forum!  We need to bring back the Rich folks!

      I think we should start a Go fund me for Cropduster to take his plane up and give us some pics. lol  He did it a few years ago but not lately.  Its pretty cool veiws from above when ice is forming.  I wonder if he is still lurking around here?

      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.

      9-11am was best time both days.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....
