Your location is off to the south by about 25 miles. I think Google took you to the park offices in town? Kickapoo is further north on 624.
The reason it matters here because you are right on the taeniatus/schotti boundary.

Thanks Chris, I amended the location to a bit more north. Perhaps that makes things a little more clearer.

You can actually see Kickapoo Caverns SP on the map attached to your record. It is a large pale green area along 674. You are still quite a bit south of it.
