Winter camping reservations must be made by calling Dale's on Lake of the Woods at (320) 630-6734 between 8am-8pm.

Metered Electricity
$500 per season

Non-metered Electricity
$600 per season

Storage for your fish house, ATV, snowmobiles, and other equipment is available for an additional charge. Campers are also required to pay the lake access fee for each trip.

Lake Access

Our Winter Lake Access (plowed ice roads) gives you the opportunity to reach those treasured fishing areas on Lake of the Woods - Gull Rock, Arnesen's Reef, and 16 Mile Reef to name a few.  Friends and family have been fishing in these areas together for well over 40 years.

Access rates are $5.00 an axle.  Those pulling a wheelhouse or trailer will pay according to total axles.

2 axles = $10
3 axles = $15
4 axles = $20

Access fees are per fishing trip. No additional charges are taken for additional days on the ice. Leaving to go home concludes your fishing trip. When you return for the next weekend, it's a new fishing trip and you are required to pay the winter lake access fee.

You are charged only for the number of axles you have on that specific fishing trip. For example, if you left your ice house on the lake, the next trip you only pay for your vehicle (2 axles = $10).

Storage

Outdoor storage of fish houses, ATVs, snowmobiles and trailers, and track machines/equipment is available for guests between fishing trips.

Cost is $3/day. There is no storage charge the day you leave your fish house/equipment and no charge for the day take your fish house/equipment back out on the lake!

The Fish Are Waiting

You can't catch 'em if you don't drop the line in the water! Spend a few days this winter doing what you love - FISHING.
