Any Nice Campgrounds on Mille Lacs?

Recommended Posts

Muskieguy

Hi gang,

Was wondering if any of you know if there is a nice campground around the big pond? I am looking for something that's somewhat secluded that has nice bathroom facilities(bringing the wife along).

Thanks in advance for any info provided!

Jason...

Just up the shore from the casino is North Star Resort. It's on the south side of Wigwam Bay. It is primarily a campground and has a newer bathroom facility that is very nice (all ceramic tile!).

There are a variety of campsites, some secluded and some not. The secluded ones are set back in the trees and are mosquito havens. I only tried them once. The other sites are pretty much in the open and there are people around you, but if there's a breeze, you'll get it and the bugs are kept away accordingly. I have found that the campground is generally quiet at night...a nice family place.

They also have slips for rent for your boat. The launch is rather steep, so, if you generally have a touch and go time at the boat ramp, you may have some trouble at this one if the concrete is wet.

I don't have the number, but you can look on the internet yellow pages for resorts in Onamia. Ask for Pat and tell her she should advertise on this site.

Good luck!

If you're going up during the week you should be able to get into the Father Hennipen State Park outside of Isle. Park is right on the lake. Has a good boat launch,beach and there are some sites in the Maple Grove camp that are private.

      Could not agree more...; but with Garmin Pan it's a bit cumbersome...

      Yesterday and today the combines got back to work. Hunted a management area next to a fresh picked corn field. Got a couple nice roosters which both flushed at about 15-20 yards. Saw several others that flushed way out in front of me. Not many other hunters out there yet.  Drove past several fields that were just combined today and there were a few places that had some really deep ruts from either combines or the tractors pulling wagons. Didn't see any of the big combines unloading directly into semi's so the ground must still be pretty soft if their not driving the trucks into the fields. About half the combines were in corn and the others getting after beans.  Weather this weekend should a little breezy and cool for Saturday with a high in the low 40's. There's a 30% chance of precipitation for Saturday. Should warm up a bit on Sunday.

      I've run an fl12 for six years now, occasionally it gets noisy but has been doing the job. Last year on lotw we had 4 vexilars going in a small area and even with the different interference settings I got feedback. One guy had a hummingbird 55 ice and had zero issues even when his was shut off still had issues. Maybe when I'm done with school I'll upgrade to something with a GPS and lake map

      Have to say it. I don't believe there is "A BEST" unit out there. Just about all of them will suit someone's needs depending on how you use them and what you expect from them. If funds are not a limitation I would recommend looking at the Garmin Ice units with Panoptix or now you can adapt Livescope to the ice. Lots of Panoptix videos out there, but Livescope is new to the ice and the open water videos are amazing. Love mine. Sold all my flashers, my LX 6 and Helix units. My opinion for what it's worth.

      Yep I've been seeing it almost daily since Friday on the south end of the bay. Getting me excited! Time to winterize the lund. It was a good run again this year!

      Omg. @Parmer I totally forgot about the Zoom, tells ya' how far my mind is from ice season yet. I do use it, but not whole lot, usally for perch fishing. Most of my Walleye are caught shallow.  
    • Parmer
      All I use is an fl8. I have had it like 16 years.  I guess I don't really believe in the zoom and all that stuff.  Think the fl8 reads fish pretty good.  And I hardly get any interference like my buddies, with there fancy Marcum's lol.

      First fish today was a big fat grey 30 incher, so as a guide the pressure was off right away. Steady action spot locked jigging in 30 feet of water with frozen shiners. By noon we needed 1 Sauger and one Walleye. At 3pm we got a nice Walleye so we quit at 3:30 one Sauger short. It was still pretty windy this morning but from the SW so fishing wasnt too tough. Had to toss the anchor at 2:30 the 3 batteries in the Terrova were spent, thats how windy it was this morning. Here are the pics

      NW is not good at Long Point(I dont know where it is good on this end of the lake.)  SW, WSW and S can blow pretty good without much damage.   Keep your fingers crossed and good luck

      Hey thanks for the help anyfish2! Would you have a wild guess on how many acres the lake is?
