Memories of Lake Kabetogama
As written by Robert Hopkins, Dayton, OH, 2010
Our family fished Lake Kabetogama for many years. We would stay at Esslinger's Resort in the 1970s. At that time it was owned by Floyd and Jean Maynard, who are both gone now. The Maynards were originally from Trotwood, Ohio, but relocated to live in Minnesota.
I remember a book that was written by a fellow named John Salmi. My late father-in-law used him as a guide, and I believe they would head to Kettle Falls.
I have so many great memories of the area. I hope this has been informative.
(Note: Esslinger's Resort later became Red Pine Resort)
