Chinquapin Group Site

It's located behind the Cedar Guard Station, which opens up to a grassy meadow with several picnic tables, a fire-ring, two water faucets, and contained bathroom, and two seat placed nearby. You can smell them.

There's a slightly graded grass meadow covered with lupine next to the green one, and if you follow back thru the forest (with some camping areas) there are two bigger meadows that are also covered in grass and lupine. There are some shaded understory areas for tending and or path. There's also a trail that goes further up the creek area. Across the road, the creek enters into a small river (Illinois?).

It's really close to the road, and also has a road that goes up along the sites from where you can view most of the site.
