Geocaching is a high-tech treasure hunting game played throughout the world by adventure seekers equipped with GPS devices. The idea is to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, and then share your experiences online.
Physical caches include a logbook, note for the cache finder, pencil and family-friendly trade items (small objects left in the caches for geocachers to trade with one another - such as toys and key chains). These items are placed in airtight, weather-resistant containers. Another type of cache is an earth cache, which highlights an area's unique natural features.
Geocaching is allowed at ten Grand River Parks. For your safety, and for the health of our properties, please seek permission from the park superintendent and fill in a permission form before hiding a cache.
