Looking for a little help with these two parks. We are looking at possibly going camping at one of these parks over Memorial Day weekend with a couple of other families. I am wondering if the fishing is good at either spot(Madison Lake and Lura lake) and if it is a good clean facility for family camping.

Thanks.

madison the walleyes will be going and the crappies will too

I have been to both many times. The camping areas are both extremely nice. You should be happy with either.

Madison definitely has a nicer swimming area! It also has a volleyball pit and horseshoe pit.

Lura gets very weed choked until mid-July.

Bray is by far a better choice, but I'll bet you won't get in their. Exspecally on a holiday weekend. They start taking reservations on march 1st I beleive. We haven't been able to get in their much in the last 2 years. and they have been by last minute cancellations.

You are going to want to get on those reservation asap! I do not remember when they start taking them, but if you don't get called in with in the first couple of hours, you will not be camping at either. I would chose Madison as a first choice and lura as a second. Call Blue Earth county and find out what date they start taking reservations. Don't wait!

Another place you could check out if there taken is Clear lake by Waseca has a big campground and theres always something that will bite there. Theres a mini golf course and horse shoe pit and a great drive in and restaurant close to it.

That would be Kesslers and I would bet that they are already booked. Awesome place to camp, but camping spots are at a premium.

      You can still fish Mille Lacs during the closure from July 1-15.  You just can't specifically target a walleye or use live bait.  There's plenty of smallmouth bass and pike in the lake that you can target with artificial lures and you might get lucky with a muskie.   The wind can be an issue out there though.  If that doesn't sound appealing to you, try the Rum River.  There is an access in Kathio State Park that would work well for a kayak.  You could go upstream and downstream from there too.   I think you will need to purchase a daily pass to use that access in the park (it might be like 5 bucks).  I haven't fished there in years but I fish the Rum River further downstream every season and the fishing in there is fantastic during midsummer.  Look for current breaks, seams, and deeper holes.

      Sorry I didn't see your post earlier. Glad your place was ok. Lake Country power said they had 20 poles toppled in one area!

      You still have your trailer and place up there? Maybe you should do some summer rentals of it to help pay the taxes and up keep on it? 👍

      The water is starting to slowly go down. From what I can tell it looks like it’s down about 5-6 inches. The wind was terrible over the weekend though. I’m sure many properties suffered damages with Sundays winds. Things are finally starting to head in the right direction but it’s going to take a very long time for things to get back to even somewhat normal.

      Stopped at VC last week as well.  Didn't have pizza, but the sandwiches and appetizers we had were good.  The service was very good.  However, that's the first and only time we had been there.

      Any other info about VC?   Got kid and and fam coming up.  Been a couple years but really liked it.   Reviews on line still good.   Did Mark just hit on a bad night or has it gone down?   Being on west not a place we go often.

      Going up to visit family at Mille lacs 4th of July weekend. Given the current fishing restrictions and the fact that I don’t have a boat, does anyone know any good shore/kayak fishing lakes in the Mille lacs area?
