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.

      Went to a small lake up around Mille lacs lake and found 20-28 inches of ice. The access looked like some busted it up, so eyeguy and I walked out. We caught bluegills and crappies on plastics. It was windy and cold but we got a few nice ones.

      Well, got out there this morning. Wind really made things miserable. Ice was about 12 inches. Was still in pretty good shape along the shorelines, although the top few inches were "milky". Ice was really popping and cracking the whole time. Everyone was traveling by foot (which I recommend). Tried for rainbows in the shallows, but couldn't avoid the perch, so I went deep for lakers. Marked one right off the bottom in 115 ft, but other than that, just a couple pods of smelt moved through. Pretty disappointing end to a very forgettable ice season

      Had about two hrs to kill today... so I hit one of our local lakes. Ice conditions were pretty good for walking out. Ice has hardened up a bit, still a bit chunky though. Had right around 13inches where I was. Found fish tucked right up in the bullrushes, 2-5 ft. Was able to sight fish to pick of some better ones.
