Camping/ fire wood

Recommended Posts


We are heading up next Thursday for 3 days of camping and was wondering if there is a ban on bringing wood for camp fires. Camping on Cut Foot in the Deer Lake sites... Any info would be appreciated.. Thanks

the state passed a ban on importing firewood onto state properties, including but not limmited to state opperated campgrounds.

any wood brought into state campgrounds will not be allowed unless it is obtained from a certified wood vendor.

this year it will only be a warning, but next year it will be a stiff fine. $150.00 I think.

my kids sell firewood to the local campers and as soon as we heard about this, we thought it was going to end their little buisness.

on the contrary, it has and will continue to help them.

we filled out the application to become certified wood vendors and now have certified campfire wood on hand, available for campers.

along with the wood, the campers will recieve a reciept, identifying the wood vendor, (us) as the source of their firewood.

we charge nothing extra for this service.

my kids get $2.00 a bundle for the wood.

the money they make goes into a jar that they have set aside to buy a horse, which personaly I hope it doesnt happen...like we need another animal around here smirk.gif

[Note from admin: Please read forum policy]

the man from the state that we talked to about becoming certified vendors told us that we were the first in the area to become certified.

he also told us that they were told in a meeting to be very aggressive on the enforcement of this new law.

if you have not yet heard of this, you will soon.

I hope this helps.

good camping!

I leave in 72 hours for South Deer Lake...

Wood is for sale up at the Camp Host...

The last 3 years for a bundle it cost $3, $2, $2...

We average 3 Bundles a day.

I lugged wood up there the first year... IMO... Not worth the effort and possible implications in Tongue weight problems, and added gas cost.

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.

      Got to get the first fish guts on it yesterday!

      Interesting. So the sows are still in shallow? We fished 10-24' the past 3 days and have done well with a lot of 14-18" eyes using Lindy rigs and rainbows.

      Here's my new boat.  Saw probably 30 Verados in the past 3 days on the east and and west ends.

      We had two fishing tournaments this weekend. Walleyes on Saturday and bass on Sunday. I met the bass winners today and talked to them about their walleye win Saturday. That’s right, they won both!  On Saturday, they entered the walleye tournament but just because they were on the lake to pre-fish for bass. They fished with stick baits in shallow water, looking for bass beds. As shallow as 4’. And dang if they didn’t keep catching walleyes. Big ones, including 2 over 26”. 21 lbs. in all. Apparently, they’re pretty good at finding bass, too. Big $ weekend for them!

      Ugly Saturday on Norwegian Bay. One Pike off of Windsock Island, nothing else much to speak of. Cold and windy but finished off with a beautiful Evening. There were a couple of good eyes caught near the north end, a 27" and a couple in the slots but most boats didn't see much. I saw 2 caught in front of the beach at Life of Riley in a matter of a couple minutes.  Sunday morning we met up with some friends and went out of Tower. Dragging bottom bouncers with minnows in 24-32' produced 11 keepers between the 4 of us, largest about 16" and lots of throw backs. Best luck just off of Priest Island. 4 hours of fishing with everyone except me pulling them in the boat until the last 10 minutes I put two in the livewell. I broke off with 10 minutes to go and was going to quit when everyone said "no, keep going!"  Glad I did cause I finished strong and redeemed myself. Never give up!

      Went to Franconia on Saturday. Wind was cold and miserable! With it howling straight downstream, my options were pretty limited, so we mostly trolled up and down the main channel. Caught 1 pike, 2 smallies, and 1 white bass.

      Things seem to be moving right along.  Yesterday on a small Cass county lake we found sunfish and crappies in 6ft+/- ft of water with some crappies already on beds.

      Looks like it was a successful outing ST. My boat probably  hates me as I haven't had it out for a swim yet. MAYBE, if I'm lucky I will be able to get out over Memorial weekend. Thanks for the report.
