What is Geocaching?
Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location.
What do I need?
A GPS enabled device
(Members can borrow one from the main office.)
Replacements for small items you take from the cache
Comfortable shoes appropriate for the terrain
Following the geocaching guidelines is important to protect the game and the environment in which we play. With these guidelines we aim to balance the needs and rights of the geocaching community, land managers, and the environment to ensure that geocaching can be enjoyed for years to come.
The more variety of geocaches you find, the better you will understand how to create an enjoyable experience for other geocachers. Find additional guidance about hiding caches in our Help Center. For publication, geocaches must follow these guidelines and any applicable Regional Geocaching Policies.
