Tent campgrounds?

Recommended Posts

minnleu

Any good cheap or free tent campgrounds on or near a lake between P Rapids and Bemidji?

Nothing fancy just a flat spot with a fire pit.

Thank you

Try 'Bad Medicine Resort' on Bad Medicine lake. Don has some beautiful campgrounds on a great lake. they wont be free, but I'm sure they are very reasonable. You'ld never regret the stay.

If you're talking about the state forest campground by the access to Mantrap it is cheap, last time I was there $9/night, nice sized lots. Doesn't have electricity, running water or shower houses though, just vault toilets. If you are just going for the weekend and don't mind putting up with your own funk for a day or two nice place to stay and like I said, right by hte public access to Mantrap.

Also some state camping sites just SW of Little Mantrap, on some small out of the way lakes. Not too far off of 71 about 9 or 10 miles north of Park Rapids.

Otherwise there is the Breeze campgound on Eagle Lake. 7 miles north of Park Rapids. Its very nice but you will have to pay.

There's a state forest campground at Two Inlets. It's a couple miles west of the lumber store on 71. We've stayed there a couple times.

There is a small campground at Whippoorwhill Resort on UpperBottle lake between Park Rapids and Lake George. Go to Whippoorwhillresort.com for more info. I am not sure how late in September they are open though. The Mantrap campground is close to there if you need it.

      The ice was very crystallized last night but still 20+ inches.

      Drifter, I hope you are right about having more open water than ice.  Was looking more closely at the average ice out dates maintained by the DNR. The avg dates for the lakes that dot the southern most part of the state are approximately one month ahead of the lakes that dot the northern part of the state like Burnt, Kab, and Vermilion.  As of this morning, none of those lakes in the southern part of the state are ice out.  Are we still a month away from open water on V then?  God I hope not, but the math isn’t helping me feel confident.

      I heard there is open water in the oak narrows by Timbuktu marina!!

      "Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock."   But I don't think I have to worry about any boats hitting it.    It should be an interesting Opener.

      A truck broke through Birch Lake the other day in like 20fow, an ATV broke through Prairie Lake and a man lost his life. The ice is deteriorating RAPIDLY. There will be some ice chunks, but I firmly believe there will be more open water than ice by May 12.  Temps up here are forecasted near 70 for a few days next week.

      Looking at the beach cam there is a lot of ice on shore. Don't know how far that goes into the water though.  Last week in April- first week in May is when I come down to seine.

      Well you learn something new every day! I always thought it was mad made. Makes sense now why it formed now.

      Drove through last week and noticed the ditches didn't have much water compared to other years. Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock.

      I hung it up last Saturday. Could have gone on Sunday but choose to spend time with my Grandson instead. Need to meet up with the guys over in central Mn. one of these days.
