Stony Point Campground on Leech.

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me anything about Stony Point Campground out of Walker on Leech? I have three days reserved the last weekend of July. Have never been there or even on the lake. Any tips on where to fish walleye nearby that time of year. I don't even have a map yet. Will be fishing with the wife and dogs so most popular (and productive) method is dragging bottom bouncers with spinners and bait rigs. Also interested in other nice places to camp on the lake if this is not the greatest. Prefer secluded. Any thoughts/suggestions greatly appreciated.

Rocstar - Stony Point Campground is very nice. Well maintained and clean. It has a nice launch with 2 ramps that people trailer in from all over to use. There are two protected marinas that you can use if you are coming in for lunch or even to leave your boat in over night if you are comfortable with that (we did). We were up there for the opener and I went back several weeks ago - so that is some indication of how we liked it. I would not put this campground in the secluded category although I would say the sites are generous, and you drive far enough to get back in there that there is no road noise or city lights. As far as fishing out of this location it presents a good central location. You can fish Stony Pt, Pine Point, run across to Duck Pt or Ottertail Pt. Good midlake structure is also within striking distance of here. Overall I would recommend this campground.

Is this not a State Park, but a private run campground then?

It's Federal. Forest Service owns/operates it.

Stayed there many times and I highly recommend it. Unfortunately, reservations are recommended as this campground seems to have turned into mostly RSVP with fewer first-come-first-served campsites over the years.

I don't know the RSVP website off the top of my head, but if you run a search on the web under USFS Stoney Point, it will come up.

      Culling is not against the law in Minnesota unless you have a limit. (Which obviously applies in this case.)   They finally cleared up the language about it in the regs this year.

      Since culling is against the regs in Minnesota, weighing in early is a great thing to do.   Congrats.

      We're heading up tomorrow. Hoping for walleye but looking to mostly relax. We'll have leeches and minnows and any tips would be great. Just looking for enough for a good fish fry. Thanks in advance.

      Caught a lot of small ones yesterday in 20 -30 ft.  A couple of eaters.  Minnows on Lindys clearly out fished the leeches on Lindys.

      Kudos for doing this. I'm sure a lot of fishermen would not have.

      I know it has been raining all week but anyone have any walleye reports?  Heading up for the holiday weekend and want to do some fishing.

      Partyonpine, Would you be willing to share in what areas you were getting some nice Bluegills?  I am on the east end on big bay and would like to find some good panfish.
    • partyonpine
      Opener and the week after were good.  Not the numbers we normally get but better quality in the East End.  Not surprised on the weights for the Auto City a.  Usually for us we only catch a few slot fish but we averaged 3 a day for 10 days.  2 overs, biggest 27 inches.     Our best luck was 12-16 feet for quality.  When we went deeper we caught more but smaller.  Bass were really starting to heat up.  For me little earlier than normal.  Found some nice Bluegills the day we went after some panfish.  Dock fishing was as many as we wanted per usual.

      We will be up on June 8th for the week. It will be our 13th year in a row staying on the lake.  I hope the walleye are hitting the bobbers by the time that we get there.
