Two Rivers Campgrounds


Recommended Posts

Looking for any info that anyone has regarding this campgrounds. I am thinking about making a trip here in Sept and am wondering what are your thoughts? Any good fishing in this area?

This is a very nice area. I don't know really how the fishing is. However the campgrounds are right where the Platte River and the Mighty Mississippi meet. The Platte is mainly used for tubing so it is usually heavily populated with drunken tubers. The tubing is an absolute blast. I wouldn't doubt if the fishing would be good right where the Platte dumps into the Mississippi. Good Luck!!!

i have never stayed at the campground but fish the river there all the time. You can always find something to fish. The tubers stop at the camp ground so if you go south in a boat it is generally quiet. You need to exercise a little caution unless you have a smaller boat. There are plenty of things to hit if you go willy-nilly thru there. But I can make it my my 18 foot Explorer and we go up to the camp ground in my friends 19 foot Pro-V all the time. If you go north of the campground towards Royalton there are some muskies to be had, but I don't know that stretch that well. If you bring a big boat and want to go skiing or tubing, head north out of the campground (on the trailer) and land north or Blanchard dam (5 miles)and there is tons of room and pretty much nothing to hit. Small cranks, jig and minnow or bottom bouncer rigs seem to work well. If you are fishing walleyes, it seems like they only bite if you are drifting downstream, I generally don't bother going upstream. A bottom bouncer, orange or gold spinner and a fathead is my usual rig. Hope this helps, Good luck.

just re-read your post. DO make sure you go in September. The fishing can be great. Find any deep hole and fish the downstream side for bass and walleyes. I forget the date but all the smallmouth have to go back in the water sometime in September. I never keep any smallies anyway, but you will catch some. If you get bored, anchor in a hole, throw out some crawler and drink beer in the September sun.

      I have a Weboost cellular amplifier at Wakemup Bay. It increases the signal from 1 bar or less to 3-4 bars BUT there is more to the story than bars. For data (like streaming video) I get faster data speeds WITHOUT using my booster. The reason as I understand it is that cellular data transmits and receives on multiple channels simultaneously (its called Multi-In-Multi-Out or MIMO.) Most boosters only amplify a single channel at a time. While the phone shows a good signal from the booster it can actually reduce the data speeds that are available with MIMO transmissions. A booster can improve your voice communications while diminishing your data speeds. You might want to look at the Mobile Internet Resource Center on YouTube for a better explanation.

      57 in Black Bay and 44 in Niles Bay today.  The lake is changing by the day and the fishing reflects it.

      So sorry, wish I could boat over to help. I think we will wait an extra week to head north.  Prayers for a good resolution.

      Good morning Mtnman. Yes, the whole rainy lake watershed is under a flood warning. Water is as high as it was back in 2014. Forecast is that is should peak around May 20. All the ice went out last week with all the wind and rain we had. My dock didn’t make it though. Ice blew in and lift the whole thing, crib and all. Mother Nature…adds another project once the water is warm enough to work in. This week looks a little drier…I hope! Safe travels when you do head North.

      The water was over 22 at the very south end of Mud and the overflow pond. I took that route to get to the cabin, I just moved the signs and drove through, saw a couple carp sunbathing on the warm road. 😂
