Parking is very easy to find, and the flowage is beautiful to behold. The cache is large enough and stuffed with alot of goodies initially.
Having almost a year under the belt GeoCachin' now, we figured it was about time to take some of the things we've (Snyder Bear Team) saw and learned and experienced over the past year, and employ these towards a few cache sites local to us.
First off, we generally found that most caches are either at the top of the highest points or at the lowest level of a wet area - either that or it drew attention to something mystical or beautiful that caused the placer to be in that area in the first place. So we set off to offset this (huh?) just a bit with some easy caches in the area that draws attention to only natural areas within our lovely Black River State Forest. This cache is easily reached by vehicle - or at least a parking site within view of it. Yet it will take you off the beaten trail enough to see some of the State forest land conservation practices at their finest. If you enjoy nature and waterfowl, this is a nice place to stop into as you swing through the State Forest. Located within this area and along the walk to the cache area (part of a flowage restoration area), you will see an abundance of flora and fauna. Don't forget your binoculars and cameras. This part of the forest really has a diversity of wildlife ranging from deer, wolf, bear, turkey, small game, and a wide variety of waterfowl as well, and they all use this area as a watering hole. In fact, when the pond was drawn down for the restoration recently, we made many a plaster casts of the wolf, deer, bear, coyote and several other creatures that walked along it’s muddy shores during the period.
In the coming months, I’ll likely be doing some research on the various flowages and update the cache site pages, but we wanted to get them going this summer as well, SO HERE WE GO THEN . . .
One thing I can assure you on your visit to this flowage cache - you stand the chance of running into an abundance of mosquito. So take stock of your insect repellent, and have fun visiting our neck of the woods…

The Geocache Notification Form has been submitted to Peter Bakken, BRF SF Superintendent. Geocaches placed within the Black River State Forest requires permission by means of a notification form. We would like to thank the State of Wisconsin for allowing us to place the Teal Flowage cache so all can enjoy the area as we have.
