Camping on islands?

Recommended Posts

Cpt. Fish

I thought I heard some where that you can camp on any island in the Mississippi. Is this true? Thanks!

I went with friends a couple of years ago where the St. Croix and the Mississippi meet. We stayed on an island on the Mississippi. I guess it is a popular island, and the people I was with said you had to get there early or we wouldn't get it. We pitched tents. I assume it was legal. I'd call or e-mail the MN DNR if you have any questions. Have fun!

I believe it depends on who owns the island, and what their regulations state. In most cases on the big rivers, they would be owned by the county or a city. I thought I just read in this week's CityPages (Best place to camp?)that it was illegal to camp on the ones in Mpls.

I think it might be illegal to camp on the islands in minneapolis, but i have fished all night on the big one north of 694 and no one has said anything. I would call and ask to make sure,but I betif the island is big enough that people can't see your tent from shore there wouldn't be a problem.

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..

      Best   I could do.  If you get deperate, Big Bay of Vermilion is only like 25 miles down the road.

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs
