MK Ranch road to lake

Any of you that have fished MK Ranch and are experienced with it, will you kindly give me your opinion or opinions on the road to the lake? The forecast calls for rain for several days and I'm fishing the 27th which is this Wednesday. Really just wondering if I'll get stuck in the mud, lol. I have a new Siverado, not 4x4. Any suggestions or comments greatly appreciated!!

John,

Road conditions are one of the most common questions we have during periods of rain. Unfortunately, it changes hour by hour so, it is impossible to give concrete answers. However, the drive in from the entrance to the dock is less than 2/10 of a mile. So, I would walk the road after you enter the gate and assess the road prior to driving all the way in. If too wet, it is a short walk. May have to make two trips with battery/trolling motor and gear. But the walk is less than 5 min one way. I know not ideal, but is an option. The water in the lake will likely not be muddy, but not sure about the road.

I agree with Steve about walking in on foot to check conditions before driving. Conditions change so fast, you never can tell until you get on property, although there are some properties that the road in are good under any conditions.

I've only fished MK Ranch once, but it did rain while I was there. The drive on property is real short as it's right off the highway. The soil is sandy near the boathouse and I left my car up on the hill as I didn't want to chance it.

I always bring a foldable cart to haul my gear between car and boat; this has come in handy multiple times when I've had to park far from the boat launch.

Thank you, Steve! That's what I kinda came up with. I don't mind walking a bit! Thanks for the info!

I bought one of these Portal foldable carts from Amazon. Wheels are pretty good, frame has held up very well(I load two batteries, tackle, anchor, paddle), and it folds up pretty small.
