The River Park welcomes geocaches. Geocaching is a great way to explore the world around you and is a game of all ages. However, in order to minimize the impact on habitat, we limit cache placement to sites near the trail or in an already disturbed area. Please review the River Park’s Geocaching Policy and submit a Geocaching Registration Form if you are interested in placing caches in the River Park.
We regularly monitor caches within our area. If we find a cache that does not follow River Park policies, we will contact the cache owner to rectify the cache. The cache will be removed if action is not taken within 2 weeks of contact.
Visit this bookmark list for current approved geocaches within the River Park. New geocaches that follow River Park policies and Geocaching.com guidelines will be added to the list as they are hidden.
What is Geocaching?
According to Geocaching.com, “geocaching is a free real-world outdoor treasure hunt.” At the game’s basic level, a geocacher hides a container with a log book inside it, marks the coordinates of the hiding spot with their GPS unit, and posts the coordinates online. Another geocacher downloads those coordinates into their GPS, navigates to the location, finds the container, signs the log book, and places the geocache back in its hiding spot for other geocachers to find.
Caches can come in many forms, depending on the person who hides it. They range from micro-sized to large, and they might be hidden under an obvious pile of rocks or be cleverly camaflouged with their surroundings. Sometimes, there are small trinkets in the geocaches that you can trade for items you bring. If you register for a free account, you can also share your adventures online.
