From the US 31 Freeway take the Shelby Exit and go east toward Shelby. Turn north on 72nd Avenue in 0.5 mile. The access road to the lake is to the left in 3.2 miles.

Or, from Oceana Drive (Old US 31), take Scout Road (2.5 miles north of Shelby, or 2.5 miles south of Hart) west. Scout is dirt for less than one mile, but becomes paved after crossing Water Street. Scout dead ends at 72nd Avenue. Turn right, and almost immediately turn left into the dirt access road.
