Spike007 has been a generous mentor, coach and cheerleader for many newer cachers. This summer he quietly logged his 5000th find.(These) are a mini tribute albeit tongue-in-cheek to him.
Located along river soouth of dam, you'll find a Mini "Spike" route.
PLEASE ALLOW HIM THE FTF.
Located in a nice picnic and fishing area on Little Falls lake – bring your fishing pole and a cooler and enjoy this lovely area. Located at the end of the main park road. You’ll need a daily or yearly park sticker to enter Willow River State Park – the staff at the entrance will be glad to help out (or use the self-service area if no one is available). A small container awaits and should be friendly during all of our varied seasons.
Once you find the cache take a few minutes and walk over to the dam and the nice observation area. It offers up a nice view of the lake, spillway, and the Willow River as it flows towards the St. Croix River.
