Located adjacent to the Paint River in Crystal Falls, MI, Paint River Hills Campground and Cabins is a favorite for fishing, hunting, and camping enthusiasts in the Midwest. Paint River has rock bass, perch, walleye, pike, trout, and even crayfish, which you can find lurking around the rocks further down river. It’s typically easy to catch the nocturnal crustaceans, but watch out for their pincers! And for hunters, Crystal Falls is a great place for small game like grouse and woodcock. Each year, archers come to the Iron County to try their hand at snagging a trophy buck. In fact, schools customarily close for the first day of whitetail hunting season and the city is wall-to-wall hunter orange. Don’t forget your rain gear.  To stay dry check out the 33 best waterproof hiking jackets.

It’s no secret that Florida’s rivers, lakes, and streams make for some great fishing. Lake Rousseau RV & Fishing Resort, on the state’s Gulf Coast, is known for having the biggest largemouth bass in all of Florida. One of the perks to fishing at Lake Rousseau is that the Inglis Dam splits the lake into two. The east side fills with freshwater fish and saltwater varieties are on the western side. In the freshwaters, you can catch bluegills, catfish, crappies, and stumpknockers.
