Big Sandy Resorts

Recommended Posts

I am trying to find a resort to stay at on Big Sandy for next summer. Any recommendations? I have a pretty nice boat so good dockage is a factor.

How big a rig ya got??
Are you looking to camp or looking for cabins?

Sand Burr, Where are ya???

PS - Sand Burr is a Fishing MN guy that would be perfect for answering any resort questions you have(maybe).
I go up there in the summer a few times, but I stay at the In-Laws cabin.

My boat's an 18 footer with not a lot of dock rash and I want to keep her that way. I am looking for two cabins for two families. One family has little ones.

(sorry guys had to get ready for the ice show then had to run the booth)

Hillcrest has cabins for rent and also atkin lake resort (atkin is linked to sandy). The sandy lake area really likes there tenters, RV'ers and seasonal campers. I can not link any of them but can tell you to do a search in google for Mcgregor MN and you will get the tourism page which will give you there numbers. Any other questions feel free to post or email me direct.

I recommend Big Sandy Lodge. They are a little more rustic and spread out. I've been going there for opening fishing for a couple years and my dad and his buddies have been fishing opener there for prolly 7 yrs.

Hillcrest is okay, but all the cabins are set up side-by-side along a main road. Its like a city trailer park on a main alley. Not very outdoorsy. Good food and drinks at the resort restaurant/bar. Also Hillcrest does gas.

      Saw on MPR that this year had been even warmer than 2012.  If this weather pattern continues, Lake V will be ice out before the March 28th date from 2012.

      Awesome fish. Way to go.

      That is a true giant slab around here.

      I did a lot of crappie fishing in 2012.   I'd say April 1 is a conservative guess. March 25 seems doable. Depends on the rain and the wind in March.

      Do you park at The Landing or have someplace closer? That would be a hall from The Landing!

      I hate to start this thread early, but this ice doesn't have much of a chance this season. It's about half as thick as it should be, there is no snow cover to protect it from the March sun, and it continues to be abnormally warm. Let's hear those ice-out predictions.   I expect the smaller bays to be open by the last weekend of March with the main lake soon after, likely prior to April 1st. Earliest ice-out on record is March 28th, 2012.   On the plus side, the spawn be done long before fishing opener. Combine the reduced walleye harvest with the longer growing season, and this should translate into a better walleye class for the lake.

      I walked into my place late Friday night. It was beautiful - a full moon, no snow and single digits so the lake was making all kinds of noise, wolves howling, and the kicker.....no wind. The only difficult component to walking was the ATV and snowmobile impressions left in the ice. Every once in a while my foot would catch a rise in the ice and I would stumble and almost fall. Besides that, it was a perfect night. Unfortunately I had a schedule to keep, otherwise I would have started a midnight bonfire to stay out and enjoy the evening even longer.
