Stopped in in December with lots of vacancies to be had. Looking for long term rental of a year or longer as I was working construction at the power plant. Asked if rates would change for summer and response was as long as you commit to stay long term it would be no problem at all and nothing would change. Well after we got them through their dead time, now all of a sudden rates go up $500 a month and oh yeah we need everyone to move out for 2 weeks since we can rent the whole resort to one group. Then of course you are welcome to come back. When I asked why they didn't tell me this in December, the response was "we just couldn't predict the future back then." All I can say is construction workers beware as they will tell what ever you want to hear and then do whatever profits

We returned to Schmidts Landing again this year because we had such a great time last year. We brought 2 more families with us and everyone wants to return again next year. Fishing was good, the resort clean and well stocked with everything you need. This is a great place to go with a family. Kids went up every morning for waffles in the C store. Cabins were clean, stocked with everything we needed. Jim picks up the garbage multiple times during the day and the fish cleaning house is also cleaned several times throughout the day. If you don't want to go out in the boat you can catch plenty of fish from the dock as well. We will return again next year.

I'm going to be 100% truthful so if you want "fluff" don't read this. I thought about this for months and decided I would be remiss to not post. No matter when you book both Jim and Donna will tell you "that's our second busiest time of year". We believed them, but when we arrived there were only 3 units rented the entire week we were there. They may promise you a specific unit but you probably won't get it. They promised my dad the end unit as he has a heart condition and trouble walking, but when we got there they had already given it to someone else. The one bright side is the Walleye fishing. If big Jim says they are not biting...well they probably ARE biting. If he tries to sell you a lure it's not because fish are biting on that lure but more likely because he has a

We visit Jim and Donna every year for the fishing opener. It is a great time. The fishing is good, and the hosts helpful. Can't wait to go back. It is a very well run campground and very well maintained. Yes there are rules just like any other resort but they are for everybody

We just got back from a week stay at Schmidt's Landing. Donna and Jim were excellent hosts and went the extra mile to make our stay enjoyable. The fisher people in our foursome were out every day in the boat that was provided in our package and, following Jim's advice on where to fish, caught a bunch. I mainly stayed around the cabin and on the grounds and read, but did go out a couple of times and caught 5 fish on my own. The cabins have all been completely remodeled, were clean and well maintained. Since they make it very clear in their brochure that if you are looking for a place to have a wild party, look elsewhere, it was a very peaceful environment and beautiful setting. We would highly recommend this resort.
