Go past Red School House on R and turn Right on Sharp Road
At stop sign, turn Left Todd’s Corner Rd.  which may change names but that isn’t important just keep going on and
Turn left on Copperville Rd. (hard to see)  Follow  Copperville Rd. around to right (don’t go straight into other farm.)  Go to stop sign.

Right on Voit which is a paved road.  At end, make a right  and go thru brick pillars – gravel road.  Gravel road will continue to  left.  When you start seeing logs and boats, you will start looking to  park.
