Feb 18-21. Have you been there before in the winter? Is it really a 3.5 mile hike from the parking area? I went there back in October and was able to walk in from the gate it was only a 5 min walk or so. Then we walked around the Craig lake loop that was about 8 miles with heading up to clair and back as well

I rented it last year. Lucky last year they were logging about 2 miles up so we only had to hike about a mile or so. But yes. The designated parking area is at US 41 on the Nestoria side entry road. Its 3.5 miles. Mainly up hill to the yurt.
. It's a snowmobile trail in the winter. So typically packed pretty good. But listen for the snowmobiles cuz they won't slow down. If you had a snowmobile you could probably park it at that gate. I've never ice fished Craig or Teddy. Teddy has a spring in it and my buddy fell through the ice last year. So be careful and have fun.

Loaded up on plastics I don't know what is even in the lake. Hopefully there isn't a ton of snow up that way

We stayed there during the summer.  A winter trip would be hard unless you have a snowmobile.  One thing you should know is that the yurt is infested with mice!  Hang any food you keep in the yurt.  You will still have night visitors.  There is a log at the yurt and most entries are rodent related.  We were there in 2016 and maybe they did something to cut down this problem.  The yurt itself and the setting are wonderful.

Just a couple of lines from the DNR Craig Lake Park regs:
FO

By authority conferred on the Natural Resources Commission and the Department of Natural Resources
by Part 487 of 1994 PA 451, MCL 324.48701 to 324.48740, it is ordered that effective April 1, 2014, the
following section(s) of the Fisheries Order shall read as follows:

Stayed there a couple years ago in the winter.  We were able to drive right up to the gate at the Teddy Lake yurt, although I wouldn’t expect that to be the case very often.

We fished Teddy and Craig - I believe we caught one perch or sunfish that was maybe 3-4” out of Teddy and didn’t even have a mark on Craig.

Had the whole place to ourselves and had fun, but wouldn’t go through the hassle of dragging all of that gear around out there again.

Didn't much just a small perch and sunfish. It was a very rejuvenating trip ice wasn't in the best of shape due to heavy snowfall.

Must have messed up on dates. I went in February. I'm thinking of going back next year and focusing on lakes in the area if I used a snowmobile to get to the gate it wouldn't be bad at all to explore surrounding areas.
