Hi does this have a sign point to turn on this road? I heard there isnt. So if do then just have to see it and slow down for the turn if no sign?

I don't believe there is a sign, but it is pretty easy to spot as you head north on McAdams Pkwy, and there is a nice parking area.

Thanks just still boggs my mind you have a rest area like this or any attraction or historical piece of history, like Ravine,(didnt get to see) Modoc Rock Shelter (saw) Schuline Schoolhouse (saw) also didnt get to see but heard no signs for it Fountain Bluff, and few others we saw but bad finding it, just what found online or google earth, they dont have signs or acknowledgements taht something historic or old is there, its like having Grand Canyon and not having any signs for it, its just .. dumb. Want to draw people to your state, but you dont have signs or warnings that something historical is arouind or approaching is werid and dumb to me, like the Illinois Caverns i heard theres signs for it warning you, but we didnt, well did see one sign -> but that was all on kk rd not around burksville, and we didnt know we were at Caverns until last second we are like wow they warn u at the road, and before you realize your there u via past it. As Modoc Shelter you zip by it thinking its a big rock, and no sign, just crazy to me :( such great history and such awesome things, but no signs :( I dont get it. Like this you can see it and stop, but it should say a big mythical bird Piasa next turn or something you know?
