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?"

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
