Maybe this belongs in the entry points sticky thread. But... I have an AWD car, but not a truck - zero ground clearance. So I really need a semi-guaranteed plowed entry point. Seems to me, Smitty's on Snowbank is open in winter and guaranteed to be plowed, and I could maybe pay them to park. I strongly suspect, that the Moose Lake entry point is always plowed, because it is so close to the Northern Tier Scout camp, and since many dogsleds use it. What else might make it onto this short list of guaranteed plowed access points? What outfitters or lodges might be open and plowed where I could pay to park? Thanks.

Well, since no one else has weighed in, I'll take a stab at it. As you expected, the Moose Lake entry is plowed, as is Lake One, Fall Lake and Snowbank Lake. I use all four and have never had a problem. Do bring a shovel. If you get much snow while you're gone you may have to dig through a plow berm left when the plow went around your vehicle.

''very good and I agree. You just have to determine how far you want to go in and what your objective is in the winter.
