This marker is placed at the Cabin Creek rest area, located at milepost 142 on southbound Interstate Highway 5. The site is approximately 4 1/2 miles northwest of the town of Oakland. The marker is on the west side of the parking area, just north of the restrooms. It is in a "kiosk" next to a map of state rest areas, a highway map, and the always helpful copy of Oregon Statutes that govern the use of highway rest areas and describe the penalties for non-compliance.
