Geocache Description:

Oak Grove Park is a 101- acre multi opportunity picturesque outdoor recreation area located 6-½ miles northeast of Hawarden on county highway K-18. Approximately 50% are rolling hills and about 75% consist of dense timber. It is adjacent, and provides excellent fishing access, to the Big Sioux River. Oak Grove Park contains several scenic observation points.

There are two large outcroppings of Sioux Quartzite in the southwest corner and a mound of slag, which is the remains of a 100 year old coal bed, that provide geological interest. Facilities available to the park-user include tables, grilles, trash receptacles, water supply, pit toilets, and hiking trails. There is a camping area located in the park, which provides concrete parking pads, 39 electric hookups, 3 non-electric camping sites, and a modern comfort station. There are also designated tent sites. The park contains two open shelters with lights and electric outlets. Also, an enclosed all weather shelter is located in the upper area of the park and may be reserved on a rental basis. This building is also used for environmental education programs. Oak Grove Park is leased from the Iowa Department of Natural Resources. The administrative office and maintenance headquarters of the Sioux County Conservation Board are located within the park and a Park Officer is on duty at all times. Park closing time is 10:30 PM.

This cache is located at the entrance to Oak Groove park. Please park far enough up the road as to not interfere with campers arriving or leaving the park. Contains only a log. No hints for now
