The cache is in an ammo box, due to where it is placed (it isnt likely to float away). You can almost park on top of this cache so i wont be surprised to see loads of entries such as ...easy find, could almost have it delivered.

Check out the History Museum and have a look around while ur here, traffic along the road is heavy so be careful when turning in to the cache area. Day Permits can allow you to wander all over the property, check in the museum for details.

The Keep out signs are for hunters so you are free to wander almost anywhere.

****DURING DEER HUNTING SEASON [Nov. 1-Jan. 1] PLEASE STAY ON THE CACHE SIDE OF THE ROAD*****

After Hunting season you will be free to use both sides of the road. Feel free to have a drink from the well, it has been tested and details are on the website. Thanks to GLN and KNOW FUTURE for the help with the messed up coords.!!
