It's about a 45 minute drive from Grand Rapids to Squaw Lake. Take 2 NW to Deer River and then 46 N to Squaw Lake from there.
Good Luck !!
The perch bite should be picking up on Round soon, plus, if you find any crappies they're usually pretty good sized too.

shadrap,
I can give you a spot to try on round where we have caught crappies in the past if you can tell me where your friend caught the perch. I am coming up there next week on our annual trip and we always fish round at least once for the perch in the day and the crappies in the evening. If you those crappies are in that spot there is no need to go to red to fish them. They're nice fish.

I was on Round this past Fri-Sun. Conditions on the lake were inconsistent. Lots of slushy spots from the melting that took place earlier are now covered by the new snow that has fallen. I got stuck 4 times when I sunk into a few of those soft spots. 2wd wouldn't have a chance out there. Take your ATV.
The weather screwed up the bite on Fri and Sat. But I scored big on Sun afternoon. Found a very good school out on the main lake. 2 of us kept 27 perch in 2 hrs between 10 and 12 inches. We threw back many many more. The biggest groups I saw were fishing the sand on the east side. It looked like they were fishing the first break. It gave it a shot and had nothing but dinks so I headed out beyond the first break onto the bars and hit fish between 9 and 12 ft.
Hogfisher--I have GPS coordinates for you if you will trade for crappie suggestions. If you don't have GPS I can give you mileage and compass heading from either ramp. The crappies have continued to give me the slip out there. I can catch those slabs spring, summer, and fall on Round but have never hooked up in the winter on them. You're right....Red crappies don't have anything on Round's, except Round Lake crappies are a lot tougher to find in the winter ( for me at least). I'm giving it one last shot March 19-21

      Saw on MPR that this year had been even warmer than 2012.  If this weather pattern continues, Lake V will be ice out before the March 28th date from 2012.

      Awesome fish. Way to go.

      That is a true giant slab around here.

      I did a lot of crappie fishing in 2012.   I'd say April 1 is a conservative guess. March 25 seems doable. Depends on the rain and the wind in March.

      Do you park at The Landing or have someplace closer? That would be a hall from The Landing!

      I hate to start this thread early, but this ice doesn't have much of a chance this season. It's about half as thick as it should be, there is no snow cover to protect it from the March sun, and it continues to be abnormally warm. Let's hear those ice-out predictions.   I expect the smaller bays to be open by the last weekend of March with the main lake soon after, likely prior to April 1st. Earliest ice-out on record is March 28th, 2012.   On the plus side, the spawn be done long before fishing opener. Combine the reduced walleye harvest with the longer growing season, and this should translate into a better walleye class for the lake.

      I walked into my place late Friday night. It was beautiful - a full moon, no snow and single digits so the lake was making all kinds of noise, wolves howling, and the kicker.....no wind. The only difficult component to walking was the ATV and snowmobile impressions left in the ice. Every once in a while my foot would catch a rise in the ice and I would stumble and almost fall. Besides that, it was a perfect night. Unfortunately I had a schedule to keep, otherwise I would have started a midnight bonfire to stay out and enjoy the evening even longer.
