I take the UPNW to OTC everyday (get on at Arl Park), but this summer I have the opportunity to spend time in SE Wis and am considering driving 30-40 mins to catch the MDN at Fox Lake. It would be a long commute for sure, but still within reason. My concern is the availability of parking at Fox Lake as I would be SOL if I showed up and the lot was full.

Does anyone know if the commuter lot fills up at Fox Lake or how I can find out if it fills up?

Thanks, John

I am pleased to report that parking was not a problem for me when catching the 6:30 to US this morning. The lot has not even half full, and very few riders boarded the train.
