The road dropped down from the rim as we approached the lake. We came upon one deep and steep sided wash but managed to get across just fine. There were blockades at the roads into the North Campgrounds with signs warning of roads out. It looks like they'd had storms here too.
We rejoined the paved world at Rt. 276 just north of Bullfrog. If you take a left here, youíll eventually get to Hanksville. We turned right toward the lake. To our surprise, there was a gatehouse. It is a federal recreation area so we tried our park pass and it worked. We found the picnic area overlooking the lake and had the sandwiches from Austinís.
