There may be construction on Hwy 57 going north. An alternate route is: Guests coming from the south should take HWY 43, towards Green Bay, (do not take Hwy 57, as the detour will take you back to HWY 43), get off at the Oostburg exit, Hwy AA , go west, (left turn), AA becomes HWY A, it will take you through Oostburg, stay on A all the way to HWY 57. Take a left turn, (south), go through barricades, to ChristPond, about a mile. Guests coming from the north should take HWY 57 through the barricades.
