Elba area campground ???????

Recommended Posts

I have been racking my brain and cannot figure this out so I thought I would see if anyone else knows. Back in the days... Me and some friends would go to a free camp area. Here are the directions somewhat:

Head down 14 to St Charles, head towards Whitewater and drive right thru Elba(After a quick stop at Johnnys) keep following the road that turns to gravel out of Elba until you come to a blacktop road w/stop sign. Take a right and the road curves around for a while and you will come to a spot where the road somewhat V's. I think there used to be an old schoolhouse or something there?? Take the left in the V and head down a gravel road for a few miles and there is an open area in the woods with a cement restroom and if I remember right there are people that would come out and do some horseback riding??

Kind of long winded here but does anyone know the name of this place? I know the DNR would come out there once in a while so it has some name I am sure?? I had many a good times here and was thinking about camping there again if it is still open?? THANKS!!!! E

Trout Valley? If you take a left at the Y does it wind down hill and go by a round barn?

Has to be Trout Valley, what you explained is going north on highway 74 up towards Weaver, and that would eventually put you up around trout valley.

I am new to this site, but I believe there is also a campground down by Elba called Lazy D????? Could that be the one you are referring to?

      As crazy as that might sound, May 18th isn’t a bad guess.  We were on the lake yesterday and had somewhere around 30” of solid ice with some snow on top.  This is hard January-type ice.  No honeycombing, no chipping or slush.  In fact, my Dewalt hammer drill couldn’t take it.  It’s dead.   Another foot of snow on the way this week?  That won’t help.

      Try the area where Minnehaha Falls runs into the river up to the ford dam. I've just used jig and fathead. Been several years since I've fished down there, but saw a lot of people shore fishing there. Pretty snaggy down there.

      Never tried it down there, sounds like fun. Let us know how you did.  👍

      Entries sure rolled in when I offered the case of beer.  We could meet at my Stuntz Bay boathouse if that would work.  Close to the landing, could anchor in front of the boathouse, or could park your vehicle at by the boathouse.  Maybe we could require the winner to be present, LOL.

      Thinking about trying pool 2 (from shore) for the first time tomorrow morning, ideally looking for walleye. Anyone know any decent spots or what kind of baits I should use?   Thanks in advance

      I know the owner.  In fact we rode snowmobiles together a couple days after the fire.  He lost most of his belongings.  Sounds like it was electrical.

      I drove by the spot I thought it was on the snowmobile and couldn't find it.
