Camping on Ottertail?

8 posts in this topic

Looking at possibly heading to Ottertail to camp and fish but.. I cant seem to find a campground (tent). Are there any on the lake?

Thanks in advance.

The only one I know of is Woodland Beach Resort and Campground on the South side of the lake...Not sure if they are still in business though...They are listed in the resort directory on this site under Ottertail...

Woodland Beach Resort closed a couple of years ago and is now a association. I don't think there is a place on Ottertail to pitch a tent anymore.

Red Lantern Resort I think still has a few campsites.

I don't know of any resorts that allow camping, but a for sure bet would be Glendalough State Park. It's about a 5 mile drive to OT Lake from the park.

For being close to Ottertail I would have to vote for Glendalough State Park also.

The only campground that I know of on Ottertail lake that still allows tent camping is privately owned - members only.

Just got to thinking I don't know if Elks Point Campground on Wall Lake allows tent camping or not.

Just wanted to let you know - the resort that I am on is located on Big Pine Lake in Perham. It's about 25 minute drive to Ottertail, and a ton of other lakes. The best part about the campground is that it has access to a dam on the Ottertail river. We do quite a bit of fishing on the dam and catch all kinds of largemouth, northern, some walleye, and rough fish of course. Let me know if you want more info. I think they charge $24 a night for primitive camping. I'd be happy to pass along the info to the resort.

      You are paying for it one way or another it is worked in the rental fee or you pay at the road I guess its a matter of preference. Places I go at milacs always had the road pass "included" I think when I rented from up north rental on red I had to buy a pass going out of rogers.   Beacon Harbor it was included

      Fun day today fishing with Rick G and Jim Uran. Caught a lot of fish and we kept some nice ones for the tummy   Rick got biggest at 12 3/8.  And we got into some neat looking party crappies also. LOL  @Rick G  @Jim Uran   Hopped in the shower as soon as I got home to warm my wet arse up. Sleet and snowy day. Enjoying a glass of Pinot Noir right now and fish fry time Thursday night. THX for the maple syrup Jim ! !

      I went out of fish lake and with my leg,  found a hole just a bit smaller than a man hole, right in the middle of a well traveled and plowed road. I Informed the folks at the high banks about it so hope they marked it. I also found several other holes from old holes widened to around 12". Im done driving for the year. If I had a house out there I would be getting it off ASAP.
