By Road During the Spring, Summer & Fall
Most of the roads around the river corridor are paved; however, many of the roads leading to river accesses are gravel. These become very slippery and muddy in spring or after heavy rains. The routes to the river accesses are often hilly and winding. Use caution when driving on them.

By Road During The Winter
In winter, many township roads are not cleared and may be blocked by drifts several feet high; do not attempt to drive these roads, even with four wheel drive. Even on major highways before setting out be sure to check at the links below for the lastest driving conditions.

Weather Related Closures
Road conditions can change rapidly during periods of inclement weather. Closures are usually short in duration and are dictated either by the current weather conditions or ongoing road construction. At times during the winter no travel may be advised.
