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.

      nephew was fishing a bobber and had another hole about 4 feet away. dropped the vex in and saw a mark and said, I'll get that crappie. Wham!  thought it was a northern. wrapped into his bobber line and had a great fight.  totally surprised when the perch popped up the hole. lol

      Hey, I expressed what I have heard from the locals.   We have been summer folks for quite a while so get some access to the feelings of the locals, like our next door neighbors.      The Landing seems to have made a deliberate business decision to not target local folks but rather upscale tourists.   That is their privilege.    I choose not to patronize them.     As a guy I used to know at IBM said  "that's not the target market".  I am not the Landing's target market.      See you at the Crescent.   (or South Switch.)   (or the VFW in cook for burger night)    Lots of places to go if I want upscale.  Whistling Bird in Gilbert, several places in Ely, etc.

      Plus+1 the lake landings are going to take a huge hit this week.

      Blocks. Make sure it's on blocks. In case it's unclear, use blocks.  I'm more concerned about the accesses than my house. Areas with a slope and melting snow run off are going to be a mess. Add rain to the mix and it's worse. I'll be checking on my house daily and be prepared to make the move off the lake if needed.

      Does the wording even change in the report or just the date?
