Access from the south is via either U.S. Highway 41 or 141 or State Highway 101; access from the west is via U.S. Highway 8 or State Highway 70. The property office is located in Florence.

Many access sites on the upper Pine River are unimproved and do not offer off-road parking. Many gravel roads, like the Goodman Grade, are marginally improved or are unimproved and poorly marked. A four-wheel drive vehicle, truck or other vehicle with high ground clearance is needed. Note: There is no bridge on the Goodman Grade at either the Pine River or Popple River.


The property is open from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m.
