Does anyone have a lake house or lake shack or grass to pitch a tent with a launch close by for a vacation in the summer? Even if it's just the grass with an outhouse a fire pit and a dock would be great! I'd pay and/or sign a contract or w.e. So no one would worry about any mishaps. Just for a "cheap" get away. And figured I'd ask on here before I start searching the inter webs. I understand it's a lot to ask someone you don't know but everyone would benefit! Even if you/ your fam or your friends were in the house and me and a couple of people were in tents that would be sweet!!! Just a thought... Btw I live near Chicago but would drive anywhere for a nice "relaxing" wakeboard/surf trip!

Its a little drive but we have a condo on Norris Lake. Before memorial day and after labor day we rent it out for $150 a night and in season its $1,600 for the week or $250 a night. PM me if you want more information.

Definitely trying to find something cheaper. I wouldn't mind the drive I just want to wake up and boat all day sleep and do it all over again but on a budget lol because who really stays inside when you have a boat and lake!! But thanks for the offer I really appreciate it! but if I somehow can afford that in the future I will definitely let you know

Come out west and have a water front camping for free to $12 a night on 75% of the land the government owns out here (there is a good side to that). If you have Corps of Engineer reservoirs then they are required by law to have a primitive free site available on each reservoir. They may not be much and the people camping there may be questionable but there are some excellent sites out here but you have to hunt them down. They aren't advertised and I did a quick search and couldn't find the requirement but it is out there as it is part of the fine print posted at a Corps campground. The nice thing is no people except for a few fisherman.

If you are going to tent camp, go down to shelbyville. Depending on where you are in chicago land its at most 3.5 hrs. Big lake to just play on. We go 2-3 times a summer.

lots of water in wisconsin that isn't too far for you. I have seen many waterfront places that you can rent weekdays for not a ton of cash. probably more than you are looking to spend tho..

I'm 2 miles to the ramp. you are welcome to camp in my back yard :)

I miss camping out west. no mosquitoes and an abundance of free sites. my old home lake- lucky peak- had tons of sites that were free and only boat accessible meaning not a lot of riffraff. that lake rocked....

Lucky peak is awesome for the camping and boat only access docks.

Yeah, if you were over here in the Pacific NW, you could camp on Government Island (between WA and OR on the Columbia River. Camping on the island gives you pretty amazing access. there's even docks and outhouses. Even a floating restroom in the middle of the river.

How about the U.P.? We have a place on a small(er) lake.... There is a rustic campground with only 8 sites within walking distance. We also have a Mojo, and the lake is quiet and calm almost always. If you want to trailer about 5 miles, you could also check out Lake Michigamme, which is huge.

Your more then welcome to visit. I have lake property (no house built yet) at Garver Lake in Edwardsburg, MI, but there are several lakes nearby. (Eagle, Simonton, just to name a few.) Garver lake is a small lake just to putt around, but i am right next to the ramp. We would only have to go out in your boat for the bigger lakes, i dont want to get laughed at with my old school 2003 Outback.
