Any opinions on Ships Wheel resort?

Recommended Posts

Heading up to LOW in a couple weeks and am considering a couple of resorts, anyone have an opinion on Ships Wheel? Cabins OK, in a good location for Spring fishing, etc?

Thank you!

I know the people at Ships Wheel and they seem like they are

hard working people who have learned the lake real well. I have

stayed there a couple of times and the cabins seem fine.

They are on the river upstream a ways. Remember everyone gets

on and off the lake in the same area. You have a bit of a ride

to get to the lake but nothing off putting.

You will have a good time.

Curt,

Thanks very much, we've stayed at Zipple before and did enjoy that. I think we will try "Ships" for the sake of trying something different.

i stayed there this winter for the first time and enjoyed my stay very much. very nice people and the cabins are nice for as cheap as they are. If you bring up a group of 6 or more people you can stay in the big cabins which looked very nice and are next to brand new.

Deerslayer! I did book with them for a stay in a couple of weeks. Looking forward to it!! Is it a long drive to their houses? I notice they are down the river a bit.

Thanks very much for your input!

      I was out on Vermilion fishing today again. Big bay still has about the same amount of ice but the ice is a lot softer now! Small patches of 4" to 6" deep slush pockets on it. Pike bay seemed solid when we went out but when we returned almost the entire bay had about 6" of very soft slushy ice on top! That will be my last trip out this winter. Talked to one Native that I saw checking a  net that he had  out under the ice in Pike Bay. He had caught around 15 walleyes and a pike today and 8 or so walleyes yesterday. Tough way to catch fish!

        Well the Pike River Dam is finally running at full throttle.  For those of you who aren't up here to see it for yourself, you can see it here: https://www.everettbaylodge.com/lake-vermilion-ice-out-2018-the-dam-is-running/

      measured ice this morning.   It has not changed in the last 48 hours.    Just the shorelines have melted.   The quality of ice has gone down though.   Still Driving my wheeler on shoe.    Still 20-28 inches out there away from current.    The bay by winter access is the thickest at 30 inches.   Don

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.

      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.

      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.
