Chickawaukee Lake Access Feb 27…….

The public access at Southern end of lake is a mass of frozen railroad tacks from trucks in slush. At the very left edge of the launch ramp you can get onto smoother ice. Lloyd’s beach is at the other end of the lake.
Lloyd’s beach at North end (140 Porter St.) has limited shore side parking for cars beyond driveway, park them in driveway.
4 WD vehicles just go down road in snow out onto lake and park over to right. Trailers go out on the ice, period. The ice is 2 feet thick, safe.
The ice has a thin skim of snow obscuring rough stuff, frozen truck tracks. The mid portion of the lake is not bad but is bordered at the further end by a waste land of bad railroad track like stuff. That is where the Westerly wind blows hardest and you are going fastest, be careful. This is not great ice overall but the best we know about in Maine right now. It should be OK through the weekend. I may not be around all the time.
