From Tofte on MN 61:

  • At Temperance River State Park, just south of the river, take FR 343 (Temperance River Rd) inland.
  • Drive 4.5 miles to a T intersection with FR 166 (The '600' Road).
  • Turn left on FR 166 and drive 5 miles to Co 7.  
  • Turn right on Co 7 then follow Co 7 through several intersections about 9 miles to the intersection with FR 369 (Sawbill Landing Rd).  While FR 369 goes straight, you will follow Co 7 to the right.  At this point, Co 7 acquires the name Windy Lake Road.
  • Stay on Co 7 about 3 more miles to Windy Lake Rustic Campground down a short access road to the right.
