I went there this past summer, and the summer before that, and unfortunately they're renovating the roads, making it more accessible for everyone. I kinda liked the fact that you had to have somewhat higher clearance to make it through. There are still a few bumpy parts here and there, but almost anyone can make it there. From what I remember, the hardest parts were the trails to Hoar Lake, as well as some road leading to Schlatter Lake. A very scenic area though. I highly recommend it, especially if you're in Houghton. I made the drive up there from Chicago twice, about a 10 hr drive total, from my house to Schlatter or Highrock Bay.
