The lake is located along an old haul trail and is most commonly accessed by snowmobile in the winter months. It is not recommended to hike this trail in the summer because of length and damage created by ATVs, however is still possible. Because of possible logging operations, be sure to contact the nearest government office for updated information before using this road. This trail is not maintained, therefore fallen trees may complicate passage. McDonald Lake is home to very targetable northern pike population.
