Only for Scampers? How about us lonely little other fiberglass trailers here in Mn?
It sounds like fun!
Is this a regular campground? I did not find it online.

Boy, wish I could make this gathering but at the moment I can't get out of town until June 22nd. Things could change before June arrives and maybe I'll be able to leave home earlier in the month.

I plan to be in the Backus area on June 26th. On the 27th I'll have the factory lift my trailer a few inches and put in a new convertor.

Questions: This is Monday through Friday with the pot luck on the last night? Just want to make sure we are working on the same year calendar.

If we don't have snow on the roads tomorrow maybe we will drive over to look at the campground. Anything anyone wants to know? We have never driven down to Federal Dam so it will be an iteresting outing. We don't fish, nor do we camp much in our home state, so have never looked at this place.

Towns aren't close by up here, so you all might want to plan on having food on hand. Maybe another group meal could be done? If we decide to come along I'll get more active with the gathering. Hopefully that week of June will not be too hot, too bugy, or too rainy.

Should I check out how far away the bicycle trail is, where one can get meals, groceries, etc? Let me know.

Our outing revealed a nicely kept campground. Site are easy to get into. Whoever took sites 62, 68, & 71 got pull through sites in case they don't know. Whoever will take site #72 will have someone's back yard behind them.

Summer 2006 there was some problem with elec and water due to a lack of funding. Have heard that it should be better in 2007, but this might be something you all want to look into closer to summer.

You who have self contained units will appreciate that as the toilets are few. There is a large new building that appears to be a shower and restroom facility.

Was relieved to find gas and groceries are about 21 miles to Longville or 26 to Cass Lake. I would personally drive the additional miles to go to Walker as I perfer that atmosphere.

Will write more later about things to do in the area.

By the way, does anyone know the day of the Scamp tour? I don't think I want to camp 5 nights. We ususally use our Scamp for road trips not camping. If I want to bond with mosquitoes and ticks I can just walk out my door.

Is this a densely wooded campground? I have camped at Thomson Causeway in Thomson, Il which is an Army Corp of Eng campground right on the Mississippi River and sites are quite open, some with cement pads, all Level. If you are looking for a place to camp in that area I would give this a top rating as to cleanliness, etc. Also Grant River Rec Area in Potosi, Wisc is good. Hopefully there won't be any electrical problems. Nancy in Wisconsin

Nancy,

This is not heavily wooded. The undergrowth has been removed. The poplar and maple trees are not huge. Sites are gravel pads. It was a grey/brow snowy day that we drove down and it would look so very different with green grass and leaves. Then one could see all the waterfowl and the feel would be much nicer.

This is an area that fishermen would be especially fond of, however I am going to post in the future about canoe and bike possibilities. If women were interested I even have a fabric outlet I could write about. It would help if I knew what interests people.

Leech lake is huge. This area of the lake is very marsh like. Leech lake produces some very nice quality wild rice and after taking my trip around the lake I now understand why.

Here is a link to a topographical map. The campground sits on a higher piece of land than what is around. http://www.topozone.com/map.asp?lon=...08&lat=47.2447

Hope this helps people, and I will try to answer questions that I can. Our excursion reminded me of the old program "Northern Exposure".

For anyone interested in bicycle trails in the area you should check the above link. The Migizi Trail is just east of Cass Lake, MN near the rest stop. It is a scenic trail, a longer loop than I am up to. Nearby is the very scenic Norway Beach Visitor Center and campground. There is also a 2 mile trail through this property. Norway Beach is on the north side of Hwy 2 and Migizi is on the south side of Hwy 2. This could be a nice day outing for folks at the Leech Lake Camp. Grocery store in Cass Lake, but not much for dining.

A possible day trip for those going to the Leech Lake Camp could be the Wood Tick Trail. This is short dirt road going east west below Hwy 200. It is a good road to see wild life on and it has some pan fish lakes for those who want a little lake for their canoe.

From the above link you can go to the left to the section with maps to see a map of this spot as well as maps of other places.
