Meet at the Lake Arbuckle Park and Campground on Old Frostproof Road
The meeting location is at the blue marker in this Google Map: http://goo.gl/maps/DIfyz
From Frostproof (intersection of Scenic Highway and CR 630) go east out of town on County Road 630. After crossing the railroad tracks, veer right onto North Lake Reedy Blvd. (approximately 1/2 mile past railroad tracks). Follow North Lake Reedy Blvd around the lake for 5 miles, then turn left onto Lake Arbuckle Road. Look for Rucks Dairy Road on the right, but continue driving east on Lake Arbuckle Road which becomes Old Frostproof Road. About two miles past the Rucks Dairy Road intersection, look for a public boat ramp on the right. This is the meeting location – pull in and park.
