Due to circumstances local to the Cheboygan area, the Michigan BFL Burt & Mullett tournament marina/tournament launch for the Saturday June 7, 2008 event has been changed to Aloha State Park. The pre-tournament meeting will still be held at the Cheboygan Wal-Mart.

Aloha State Park is a large and beautiful campground with a 2-banger ramp and a large soft-bottomed harbor on the NE part of Mullett Lake. Located at the end of M-212 off of N M-33 about 6 minutes south of old US 27 and 12 to 15 minutes south of the Cheboygan Wal-Mart, this will be an excellent location for our event thanks to unprecedented cooperation from the Michigan Department of Natural Resources with regard to parking and tournament weigh in setup.

The Bass Federation of Michigan state championship will still be held on Sunday June 8, 2008 on Mullett Lake also from Aloha State Park particularly thanks to the work of Michigan BFL tournament director Anthony Wright.

Any questions about Aloha, just ask. I've stayed their many many times for almost 20 years.

Suhweeeet!  No long idle down (or up?) the Cheboygan.  Better call tomorrow and make my reservations at Aloha.

It's actually not a bad launch as long as guys don't Dilly Dally around and get out of the canal and into the main lake ASAP....
I would say it is a big improvement over launching in the river.

Guessing they will have boat check at the steel wall near the end of the 'lagoon'.  Whatever they plan, I would like to see them not let anyone launch until boat check is open.  That would let guys get the heck out of there and make room for others.  And maybe regulate the flow of the launch to eliminate a big jam.

As well as things went for the most part at Fort Madison, they made a HUGE mistake.  They let guys start launching before boat check was open, and they filled the darned marina.  Boats coming up to boat check couldn't, because of the constant flow of more boats coming in.  A big mess that could have been avoided by letting boats check and get out.

Good move not making us idle up the river.  I am glad it will be at Aloha.

Jighead-  Good point about boat check.  At Ft Madison it seemed that they waited a long time the first day before they opened boat check.  You are right, if boat check would have been open sooner it would have been nice.  I like to go through boat check as soon as I am off the trailer, before i pick up my co-angler.

The thing that got me last year idling out was how long it took against that current, going back in was a breeze. Glad to be going out of the main lake this year.

I've stayed at the Cottages on Veery Point on ice fishing excursions.  Decent places with lots of room to sleep many.  Not sure how accomodating the road going in and out would be for a boat trailer, though we pulled a snowmobile trailer in there no problem.

Aloha's pretty nice, I guess.  Nice showers, good shaded sites are available.  I'll be there Monday thru Sunday.  Got me some waterfront property right on the canal so I don't have to trailer each night.  And you can't beat camping right at the launch and weigh-in site for back-to-back tournys  ;D

Glad I booked my camp site for the week already!  The launch is tight, but I'm sure they'll manage it well.

can you park your boat on the campsite or do you have to keep it somewhere else?

If you get a deep enough campsite I would think you could keep it  right there...

I am sure you can keep you rig at your site.  my 20'5" ranger plus my dodge ram are about 40 ft.  Look for a site that will hold a 40ft trailer.  The camp was nearly full last week, better hurry.

Plenty of sites you can back your boat into and most sites you can park your boat if you unhook.

Vic, not sure about the camp was almost full comment? There are 285 sites and that is slow season still for them. Memorial weekend can be very popular. And then things don't pick back up until close to the 4th of July.

According to http://www.midnrreservations.com/campgrounds/ most of the sites are still available.

I already have a room at the Pine River Motel if any co-anglers want to share a room for a night. It is 10 miles from Aloha and bout 2 from the Walmart.

I have a reservation at the campground from the 3rd to the 9th if anyone is interested in staying in a tent. I have the lot right across from the boat launch. Give me a pm if you are interested.

I stayed there last year and think it will be just fine especially if they let us go through boat check and park in front of the beach area until take-off, Dan it seemed like their were two launches the one at the entrance and the two holer in the back that I was using, do you remember if there was one by the general store, if so this would really speed things along.

A lot of the sites are 40 feet or close to it. No sense in waiting too long, but there are many places to stay in Cheboygan too (Chamber: 800-968-3302). Or down in Indian River (Chamber: 800-EXIT 310).

I think there is an old unimproved boat ramp down the end of that road by the old pier, but I thought it was dry now? I don't really know since I've never gone to the end of that road and only fished by the pier a couple times. I think I've only seen very small aluminum boats down there? I don't believe it is state park property.

There's still the small MDNR ramp in the NW corner of the lake next door to the marina. It has a self pay station now. One trailer ramp and parks 20 to 25 trailers.

There's another small MDNR one hole ramp on the north side of Round Pt off M-33 on Boy Scout Rd I believe. Limited parking. Been a while since I launche there. Maybe parking for 10? It's just around the other side of Needle Pt from the state park.
