An andrewmcc/William O'Brien State Park cache
THIS CACHE IS IN WILLIAM O'BRIEN STATE PARK, PARK FEE REQUIRED
Lake Alice is named for Alice O'Brien. In 1945 Alice memorialized her father, lumber baron William O'Brien, by donating 180 acres of his former estate to establish the area as a State Park.
This 26-acre lake is as deep as nine feet in some places. Natural springs feed the north end of the lake, keeping it free of green algae during the dogdays of late summer. The Lake Alice fishing pier is a popular spot to catch a variety of fish, including blue gills, crappies, smallmouth bass and whit bass. Bald eagles and ospreys often fish along the shores of Lake Alice.
This cache has been approved by the William O'Brien State Park Staff and the DNR.
A special thanks to Randy and Diane for letting me work with them with their geocaching program and getting this cache published.
