Use your smartphone or Global Positioning System (GPS) device to find the hidden treasures using the GPS coordinates. All of our caches are posted on the Geocaching website and can be searched for using the geocache codes provided. Getting a geocaching membership is free and easy. Once you are in the right area, start to look around for the cache. Some caches are easy to find but others can be more tricky.
In order to play, you will need only one thing: a smartphone with Global Positioning System (GPS) or a GPS device. If you are using your smartphone, we suggest downloading the free geocaching application. Once in the app, it's easy to search for our caches using the geocaching (GC) codes provided. If you are using a GPS device, you can find the coordinates on our page. You can also search for our caches online by using the GC codes and putting them in your device or downloading them from the website and uploading them to your device.
Once you find the cache, do a little happy dance to celebrate, sign the log book and make sure to put the cache back the way you found it. If you are participating in our Recreation Passport Program, make sure to write down the cache code in your journal.
