Does anyone know of any nice campgrounds with tent sites on a lake with access to the Whitefish chain or Gull Lake? I'm trying to plan a weekend of boating/lounging/playing in the area mid-July and want to be able to cruise around, stop and have a meal/drink, etc.

Thanks Brittman! Do you know if you can leave your boat in the water overnight here or if they have campsites on the water? How about a swim beach?

The federal campground in crosslake is nice. But might be booked up. They have lake access and great beach. The Gull lake campground is nice but I think you have to trailer your boat. Leech and Cass lake have some excellent Federal campgrounds if you want to go a little further.

Deep Sinker, Yes you can leave your boat in the water at the Gull Camp ground. Most people tie up rite above the damb at the canoe portage. As for a beach, they gots a real nice sand beach and grills and tables rite there for lunch.

I am pretty sure that the crosslake(army corp. of engineer campground has a first come first serve basis on many of there tenting sites. I have camped there this way many of times. As long as you don't get up there at 10pm friday night you should be fine. Great place to camp!! Good Luck!

The Army corps site in crosslake does have some they have to leave for 1st come 1st serve. But it does leave open the possibility that you may be SOL. I have done this many times before and never had a problem but I usually go early Friday to make sure I am OK. Good Luck!

      I hope this analysis is wrong, but was doing some math trying to guesstimate when Lake V might go ice free.   As of today, the DNR shows only one lake in the state to be ice free: Pepin.  Pepin went out 20 days later than the median date and 4 days later than the nearest comparable cold year of 2013.   If we extrapolate this same delay to Lake V, then we are looking at an ice out in the neighborhood of May 20th or 21st.  Not quite the record, but close - and plenty late enough to screw up a lot of plans.  Like I said, I hope this analysis is flawed somehow.

      Hey Guys,   Just wondering if any lakes are open or close to being open?  Got the itch to get the boat out and wet a line!

      St Louis county has something similar on their web sight (sic) https://gis.stlouiscountymn.gov/LandExplorer/

      Good idea on the silicone spray definelty something to do every spring a big help to keep things sliding nicely. I use that stuff on anything that slides. On telescoping flip over poles for example.

      Pulled it up front and went to work on it. Silicone lubed everywhere.  Quite a task taking the steel cover off underneath that protects the main drive but got er done. Zips right up and down with the attachment I got for the drill. Nice!

      I found a very handy app for this. It's called onX Hunt Maps.  (I'm just a user) It's primarily designed for hunters that want to know where state/federal vs private lands are.  To see property lines etc. you need the paid (premium) version. The free version comes with a trial of the premium version for 7 days. But even the free version does quite a bit. It's pretty interesting for Vermilion because there is so much of each - private and state/federal lands. You can click on each parcel and it will even give the acreage, landowner names and tax address.  If I pull up to shore, I really want to know that I'm not trespassing. GPS works along with markers/waypoints. Maps can be stored for offline use so you  can use it without phone service or wifi. The free version comes with a trial of the premium version for 7 days. I added a zoomed out screen grab.
