Muchattoes Lake is located on the western side of Lake Street (aka route 32) behind the Lake Street Mall.
Coming south on Lake Street from Broadway take second right onto Lake Drive.
Coming north on Lake Street: make a left turn onto Lake Drive after the stop light at the gas station.
Our work site is 500 feet or so further along Lake Drive on the left.
From there you can actually see the lake!
