Box #1 -

Leave Merrill Campground and go right on the Bike Trail. Head toward Christie Campground.

Go Approximately 1/2 mile, you will pass 3 benches. (If you come to the 4th bench, you went too far.) Approx. 750 ft after the 3rd bench you will come to a sharp 90 degree turn in the trail. "Stop".

Look to your right, you will see a marble bench which has been dedicated to "Donald Lee Stapp" by his family. Sit on the bench and enjoy the beautiful view of the lake and peacefulness of your surroundings.

After taking in the view, turn 180 degrees from the lake view. Go approximately 80 man size steps to a small stump. Turn left 90 degrees and go approximately 55 man steps to a large old stump. What you are looking for is hidden under the stump.

After marking our book, please be sure to cover it up well, so it will survive the winter.

Box #2 -

Leave Merrill Campground and go left on the Bike Trail. Head toward Eagle Campground or the Marina.

Go past the amphitheatre. Go to the 3rd bench after the split rail fence (The fence is right after the amphitheatre). There will be a bike rack next to the bench.

Look at the view, then turn 180 degrees. Go approxeimately 30 man size steps to a single pine that splits into two pine trees at the top.

Go approximately 45 degrees left (approximatly 10:30 on the clock) for about 30 man size steps to a short old stump.

Go approximately 20 degrees right (approximately 12:30 on the clock) for about 22 steps.

You will see several fallen trees that form a large triangle.

What you are looking for is under the middle of the first fallen tree. Look under the pine needles.

Be sure to seal and cover the box well, so it will survive the winter.

The trek to both boxes is very easy for children and pets.

We hope you enjoyed find our boxes. Plese let us know if they are OK. We come back every year to visit the lake and would like to see how many people have found our boxes.

Thanks, The Di Mauro Family
