From either Crystal Falls or Iron River, leave town on US2.  Turn north on Reiman Rd by Luckey’s Sport shop (that’s a left if you’re coming from Iron River, a right if you’re coming from Crystal Falls). You’ll know you’re close to this turn when the speed limit drops to 45.  Follow Reiman Rd until you reach the lake.  There will be parking to the left and the pavilion just beyond the playground.
