Another padlocked campground.

No camping here in the fall. But, the boat ramp to the north makes a decent dispersed site.

Quiet camping on the Point

 This is a Chippewa National Forest campground on the tip of Tamarack Point which juts way into Lake Winnibigoshish. It is a haven for folks who like to fish, or walk on quiet forest backroads. There is a standard basic US Forest Service campground for tents and trailers(no hookups though) along with a paddlers tent site located at the nearby boat launch. At the present time, the regular campground is officially closed due to staffing issues with the covid-shutdown, but the nearby USFS boat launch is still open, and through paddlers on the Mississippi Headwaters Water trail can tent here if traversing Lake Winnie and not able to make it the whole way across. Under ordinary circumstances, the campground offers several nice basic but heavily forested campsites which would be very enjoyable for tenters who want a more secluded camping experience. Some sites have RV and trailer possibilities, but without hookups so be prepared. Folks like camping here for the quiet National Forest destination, and for fishing in Lake Winnie. Though the water is clear and pristine, a recent infestation of zebra mussels does make the beaches a bit crunch now, and you need to take care to clean watercraft so as not to transport veligers to other locations. The boat launch has a good ramp with great lake access, and it is easy to pull out or put in a canoe or kayak here as well. The paddler tentsite here just has a grassy site and fire ring though, so be prepared, but it is a good stopover site if trying to traverse the lake from west to east on the water trail.
