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.

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

    • Wanderer

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
