Mantrap Lake Campground

4 posts in this topic

We are going to be coming up to Mantrap in Aug and was wondering about the State Campgrounds on the lake. Do they have launch, beach and can you leave your boat in the water overnight? Any information would be helpful. Thanks. cool.gif

There is a launch just before you get into the campgrounds. I wouldn't recomend leaving your boat in the water though, you aren't able to keep an eye on it at all from the camping areas. They do have a swimming area, just off from the landing. Keep an eye on the kids though as there is a drop off not far from the swimming area. Have a great stay have had many great memories up there. grin.gif

You should also be aware that there are no hookups in the campground. No water, electric or sewer. I believe this is true - - - someone correct me if I am wrong. The camp sites are very nice.

Sod Farmer is correct, there aren't any hookups in the sites. There is water spicket were you can get water, and they have vault toilets. Don't remember a dump station either. I prefer the sites along the back row, seem to be a little more spacious and shaded.

      I want to give an honest review of Steve and north county auto. He saw my post on here of a fisherman in need and offered his service. I looked around and could have taken my hub to get repaired at multiple places closer to me than Crystal, but decided to give another fisherman a try.    This was a perfect experience.  He was willing to meet me outside of normal business hours to accommodate my schedule. The stitch up appears totally solid (double stitched) and Steve even warranteed the repair. The price was more than fair and he's a nice guy to boot.    I'd definitely recommend this place if you're in need of canvas repair. He does a bunch of other things for the open water fisherman as well.    My apologies if this somehow violates any rules on the forum (I never looked) but my experience was a good one and wanted to pass it along.

      We did not go all the way out this weekend so I can't say for sure where 'most' were fishing.  Since you can literally go anywhere, there were no real "concentrations" of houses that I saw.  Everyone was spread out real nice except I did see quite a few houses fishing in closer to Pine, near the snowmobile trail, based on the distance (maybe a mile or mile and a half out?) I would guess they were "shallow" and not out to the basin.  Distance can be tough to judge so this is my approximation.   Some friends road sleds WAY north and were surprised that shortly after they set up a suburban came from the south and fished near them.  Like I was saying people are spread out.   Adrian's road now only goes out 11.5 vs. the 16 miles they were out a week ago.   Good Luck!

      Was on the boat Sunday got a little further past the 49 bridge. Is the 22 landing opening up at all? Anyone know how much ice is even out there? I would think we made a little.
