The road wasn’t to bad there were some large pot holes. The road is long and you loose signal so make sure you remember the way you took. We went lake in the afternoon and came back at dark. We did a bonfire by the lake then headed back down.

This is one of my favorite drives to an absolutely beautiful mountain lake. The drive itself is rather easy, you do not need a 4x4 however you do need some ground clearance a pickup or SUV will work fine. Some people will take a pickup camper up to the lake where there is a campground but don't try it with a trailer!
