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.

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
