Anyone know if the Basin Road is being plowed this winter

Anyone know if the Basin Road is being plowed this winter? Park office isn't much help with this. Their answer is no even when it is being plowed.

Hey Martin .......... I'm told it was plowed last week , and there are Winter logging operations . I can't speak to the road past Basin Depot ..... beyond the bridge , after the turnoff to Frog Lake Road .

Hey John, just past Basin Depot after the bridge, the road splits. I always figured we weren't allowed to take the road to the right. The one that goes up the West side of Basin. Is that one called Frog Lake road?

My Apology .... Martin. 
I referred to the road as Frog Lake road after the bridge.
 In all due respect ..... historically it has been referred to as the Mc Guey farm road . ( Roderick Mac Kay ....Spirits of the Little Bonnechere ) 
Yes , there is a gate .
It is well worth walking past that gate ..... and not far to the East .... a wondrous growth of trees with velvet moss along the side of a meadow that sings the sounds of Spring and the Howl of the wolves in Fall .

Thanks a lot.

I was planning a drive up to the Basin Road tomorrow , anyone bin in there lately ?  I'm a bit concerned , as there were Sunny Ways out here , south of Ottawa til about 4pm , as I was on the snowshoes , blazing trails to the maple trees fer the sap season .... I noticed this fast moving real dark cloud of accountability moving up the valley , heading towards Ottawa ?
