Default Deer Camps

Been on our lease for 3 seasons but haven’t set up a camp. Place is 20 mins from the house so hasn’t been an issue but gonna work on setting it up this spring. Love having a camp and place to stay at the lease. That being said looking for camp ideas and couldn’t find the thread were people posted their camp pics

20 minutes from the house. The first thing, that is way to close to chores, honey do's, work all that jazz. Just kidding.

I would say a shipping container box for storage and such. Make you a porch off one side to get under and out of the north wind and rain. Put some rock down to stay out of the mud. Fire pit to cook with and sit around the fire. Electricity if ya really want to get fancy and its close.

20 minutes away is closer than my commute to work! You’re a lucky man to hunt so close to home.

I’d say that you could build a pretty respectable cabin for yourself and a couple others. Also, don’t forget about a pop up tent. If you find a tent, cots, and sleeping bags rated for cold weather, you can be relatively comfortable without hauling much stuff.

I don’t have any pics, but we have been sleeping 3-4 people in a 10x14 tent I got from Walmart for $200. It’ll keep you dry, but it won’t keep you warm. Between cots, sleeping bags, and the tent I’d say you can get fully outfitted for around 400 for yourself and an additional 100-120 per person after that.

Ours looked a lot like the previous ones posted for the first 8 years with just campers and 5th wheels. We did have a water tank, pump, and electricity from a pump jack. We brought in a couple of loads of gravel to stay out of the mud. Our container box was just for the mules and golf carts. We spent all our time outside during the day and around the fire at night.
Then 3 years ago someone gave us a mobile home. Now we have central, heat and air, full-blown electrical service, a lean-to off the container, concrete floor under that, walk-in cooler, lights everywhere, homemade septic system, 5 more loads of gravel. We have really gotten soft over the last 3 years I can tell you. I liked it better the old way.

This. Especially since the OP only lives 20 minutes from house should he need to run home and clean up or anything.

This is my "camp" on my place in Rusk Co. I would trade the 3,100 sq. ft. house that I live in for this 1,200 sq. ft. camphouse in a heartbeat if circumstances didn't prevent it. Love this place.
