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.

      Made it out last night. Beautiful night. Caught a bunch of Crappies, sunnies, a norsky and a few walleyes. All CR. Amazing how quiet the lake was. I was the only boat out for the most part. First boat in parking lot at 5:30 and no AI inspector this time. Have not seen them for quite awhile now.... Water temp was 78. Panfish were caught on simple Jig/plastic in about 12 feet along shoreline weeds. Walleyes on spinner/crawlers in 17-20 on midlake structure.

      Berserker Bass.   This is probably the most exciting hit I have ever had from a bass.   Had to slow it down to get the full effect .Berzerker bass video

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      This rain is keeping the rum muddy.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick
