Yes there is something there... a cache box.  There are several "park" 
caches with nothing scenic about them either... I have often seen as much 
wildlife/wild flowers at reststop caches as at others that are in parks.  
One of the things that "they" are trying to eliminate is reststop 
virtuals... thus there really is nothing there that wasn't there before.
