Geocache Description:

One of my typical bison tubes that blends in very well with surroundings!

We found out today that there were no current caches at Rickwood Cavern State Park. Thanks to Caverscott we were given the green light to place this cache in the area...as we did today!

This is such an awesome area. It is hard to believe that there are normally not too many people or action around! We thought by placing a few caches, would be a postive move for the park in helping to bring in new visitors / cachers to the park.

We have permission to place this cache and the needed permits have been completed and approved by management.

The current cost to enter is only one buck! Cheap price to pay to see such awesome nature and to be able to have the opportunity to camp, swim in an olympic size pool, see nature, have a picnic find an earthcache as well as a few other traditional caches while visiting in such a great place.

Please exercise caution on the trails. There are many slippery, uneven terrain as well as trip hazards along the way! Enjoy the hunt!

The current park hours are from 8:00 A.M. to dusk, unless you are staying overnight camping in the park.

Experience the thrill of Rickwood's miracle mile of underground caverns! The 260 million-year-old limestone formations, blind cave fish and underground pool are just a few of the natural wonders exhibited in the colorful cavern. The park features an Olympic-size swimming pool, snack bar, picnic area, large and small picnic shelter, hiking trails, playground, campground and gift shop.

Rickwood Caverns is a recognized member of the National Caves Association, and offers more than a mile of living geology. The caverns themselves were water-formed during the Mississippian period over 260 million years ago. Rickwood Caverns still contains active "living formations," as mineral-laden water droplets build colorful structures and flowstones. Rickwood Cave reveals that it was carved from an ocean bed - shell fragments and fossils of marine life are clearly visible along the cavern ceiling and walls. Many curiosities are featured on guided tours of the "miracle mile" at Rickwood Caverns State Park.
