* Summit Lake Rd is a secondary dirt road maintained by the Town of Sanford.  They do an excellent job at maintaining it.  However, it can be tricky in winter depending on the weather; AWD/4WD (or at least front wheel drive) is highly recommended - the road is plowed/sanded regularly, but conditions can change quickly as the camp sits close to 2000' in elevation.  Use extreme care when encountering another vehicle - some portions of the road have little/no shoulder, with ditches that you do not wish to drive (fall) into.   The nearest gas station is 10 miles distant - Camp does not have a gas pump.
