So, looking for a drive in camp, housekeeping, small to mid size water, remote and very good walleye fishing in particular. Doesn't have to be a true numbers lake as long as we can eat a few but have chances at a trophy.

Does a place like this exist that is affordable? Typically a group of 8 to 14

Thanks
Take a look at Austin's Wilderness Lodge or North Albany Lodge on Lake Pashkokogan. 20,000 acres but divided into two distinct parts. Both very good camps. You won't get much more remote than this one. Very good size and numbers, especially in June, of course, but solid all summer. Islands, points, reefs, current all plentiful. No private cabins on the system. Only the two camps I mentioned above, seven cabins in each.
Good luck! Let me know if you want more detailed information. Been going there for over 20 years.

Default What is the price range and how far are you willing to drive?

Out group has been going to Basket Lake Camp the past 6 years. We also got tired of the "big water". It is a small lake 10 miles from tip to tip with excellent walleye and northern fishing.
You have to bring your own boat and do your own cooking and is very reasonable. The only problem is it is very hard to get in. Most people have been going there for 20 plus years and not many opening. You could send Anita an email and see if she has openings or get put on a waiting list.

Great place on the Indian Lake Chain. Should check all your boxes, plus you can get into Bass, Muskie, Pike, and possibly Lake Trout or Perch depending on the time of year. When are you looking to go?

I would highly recommend that you consider this option. I went to Mark's Trident outpost back in 2016. We had a great week. The cabin was perfect and the fishing was stellar. Mark was great guy to deal with and his rates are very competitive.

I would try the west arm of rainy lake. Try Labellas. Some good walleye fishing in that area and some big ones. Lakes not so big and open in that area the kicker is the smallmouth fishing that goes with the walleyes.

Where do you live? If you are within a couple hundred miles from Minneapolis go to the Northwest Sport Show at the end of March. There will be be a couple hundred resorts represented and the owners can answer your questions. Minneapolis is a good town for a long weekend trip.
