    Yes, it is a fun weekend. John runs a good program if you just want to shoot.

    I have been going there now for about 4 to 5 years. Im one of the campers in the rear of the motel. When I first started to go there it was $5.00 a night to camp. Then went to $10.00 a night, then $15.00 a night and then to $20.00 a night. I questioned the clerk about the increases and she told me that when it was at the $15.00 there were going to leave it at that price for the shooters. Well now I see that this year they are raising it to $30.00 a night. When I questioned the clerk about the increases I told her that I thought it was a little steep and that you could problably find a full hookup for less. Her quote was "then go there" Yes it is a very nice and fun place to go, but I think that $30.00 a night is a little steep. The distance that I travel from superior wisconsin is about 165 miles one way. Thats about 300 miles round trip and diesel fuel is about $4.50 a gallon and at 10 miles per gallon thats about 30 gallons. Four nights camping $120.00. Fuel at least $135.00 Thats $255.00 and I havent fired a shot. I heard through the grapevine that they raised the hotel rates quite a bit for the frostbite and there were a lot of cancelations so they lowered the rates back down. Has anyone heard if they lowered the camping fees?? I sure would like to go to the fall shoot but I dont think that Ill will pay the $30.00 a night nor will my friend. I think this is a little much especially with the increase in targets, bullets, lead, along with the gas prices. Anybody feel like me??? alex Kotter superior Wisconsin

    Eagle River is only a few miles away. I am sure you can find a camp ground close for less money. Bill

    Thanks Bill: Do you by chance have the number to Gateway. I cannot find an old program. I think Ill give them a call maybe even talk to John Muir. The casino at watersmet has 14 sites but I dont think that they take reservations. First come first serve. Anyway thanks Bill are you going to the fall shoot? alex Kotter
