Ely Minnesota Fall Lake rally 8-15 July
« on: May 02, 2018, 07:52:14 PM »
In tonight’s forum chat, there was enough interest in a rally in far northern Minnesota that we decided to make it public. Kevin and I will be at the Fall Lake National Forest Service campground from 8 July until 15 July in site 25. The campground is northeast of Ely, MN at the edge of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. It is an area of trees, rocks, and lakes - lots of lakes. The campground was completely rebuilt a few years back and has a mixture of tent sites and sites suitable for big units. Many sites have electricity. There is a swim beach and boat launch at the campground, but motorized boats are severely limited. It is great for canoe and kayaks though. There is also a swim beach and a small camp store. The surrounding area has great fishing, mine tours, and cool little towns. Note you will have to make reservations on recreation.gov, and the place is busy on weekends. Right now there are sites available during the week. There are also walk up sites suitable for bigger units. The plan is very loose and mostly will be a afternoon get together where alternatives for the next day will be discussed. Everyone is free to attend or not, as they wish. Note this is good timing for those hearing out to the FMCA rally in Wyoming a week later.

Thanks Pam. Eric and I are planning on attending and will make our campsite reservations tomorrow.  It would be great if the RV Forum admins would post the event on the main rally page.  If people have not been to the Boundary Waters this would be a great opportunity for them.

We reserved Site 20 for July 8 through July 11.  People who want to attend the rally should make their reservation soon especially if you have a big rig.

In addition to Max and Eric being confirmed attendees, we have two “probables” - Wendy plus Caryl and Bob. There is also a friend of Max and Eric that plan on attending. It may not be a big rally, but it will be fun.

Just a note that there are a number of non-reservable sites at the campground, many with electricity. Weekends are busy here, but arriving fairly early on a weekday will probably be successful. The length limitations range from 35-57’, so most would be able to fit.
