Locate the sign directing you to the picnic area and swimming beach. Park your car on the side of the street outside the gate. (During the off-season, the gate may be closed and locked, thus the need to park outside the gate, but there is no charge to walk through at this time. During the summer, there is an admission charge, $4 per car or $1 per walker, to get into the recreation area, but the letterbox is not past the point where you are required to pay). Start walking down the street toward the picnic area and swimming beach. 80 steps past the 20 mph sign, is a bundle of 3 thick and 2 thin trees on your right. Cross over the drainage ditch to get to the bundle of trees. The box is behind the trunks in the roots.
