I've stayed at Moccasin point several times. It's a good campground, showers/toilets were always as clean as you can really expect for a campground. The sites next to the water are very nice as you can just head out the back of your site to the docks/beach area.

You're right in the middle of the lake there, so there's fishing all around. You can head to the west end or big bay without much problem...

Nice little store there to grab a bite to eat, a beer, or to wait out a storm. Always been friendly people there too. Can't say anything bad about the place.

Oh, and the docks there have a spectacular view of the lights when they're showing.

hoodoo point is also a nice campground, that where my seasonal site is. Its a pretty short boat ride out to some good fishing areas in big bay and you can also catch fish in pike bay sometimes. I havent stayed at mckinley or moccasin before so i cant compare those 2 at all.

My father has a seasonal on Hoodoo point. It's a nice campground.. I believe he fishes relativly close to the area too, sometimes right off the point.

It's been years since I've been to McKinley Park, my uncle has a cabin in that bay and from what I remeber it was a nice place.

Mocassin point, been there for a beer and ice the past few years, but I cannot recall ever noticing their campsites.

I've camped at Moc. Point many times. Nice campsites, clean showers and the location makes it a short boat ride east or west. Plus it's about a 10 minute drive for the bamboozler pizza!

Last year to camp at Moccasin Point....sounds like they will divide up the 44 acres into 11 plots and sell them.

Of course, they'll need some type of approval. But, they're gone!!

The whole thing has been for sale for a year or two.

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!

      Eskimo cs is top notch. I have had 2 different pop-ups and have a 949i now and love it. Wasn't overly impressed with the flip over pop-up at Cabela's though. It seemed to have less room out in front of you than the other flip over from clam and otter.

      I recently had a chance to go fishing with my friend who recently purchased a Vexilar fishfinder. However we find it incredibly difficult to identify fish in the Sonar image. We tried even the fish alarm under settings but it didn't work reliably, going off at times with nothing on the Sonar image that looked like fish.   Any tips of what we should be looking for in the Sonar image?

      Getting the 6" clam plate hopefully this week. Picked up a brush less 20v dewalt on sale for black Friday. After using moose's drill a couple times last year I am all in on the drill plate!
