Geocache Description:

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 Spike 007. Located along the river south of the dam, you'll find a mini "Spike" route. Please allow him the FTF.
Please replace axactly as found. When rainy, may need to cross water.

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.
