There is very little parking at this launch. The 4LIYC is organizing an ATV shuttle service so that you can roll your trailer on the ice, and have your trailer shuttled over to Springers, where you can also park your car.
UPDATE: 2  ATVs will be at Pleasant Springs Launch Saturday morning at 8:00 am to begin shuttling to Springers. There will be a tongue sled available for dragging heavier trailers.
We ask that you please use one of these 2 launches and leave the third launch for the 4LIYC Renegade fleet.
