Geocaching is an outdoor activity that brings treasure hunting into the 21st century and is a perfect way for individuals and families to explore the park system. There are 40 caches in Ramsey County parks and thousands throughout the state.
Geocaching is initiated when an individual hides a cache - normally a waterproof container with small items inside - and records the location with a GPS (Global Positioning Unit). The cache may be in a hollow log or under an object. The individual posts the GPS coordinates, along with a description of the cache, on the geocaching website, and other individuals then try to find the cache. When someone locates a cache, they sign a log book and take or leave a small item. They also post their find on the online log book.
All approved caches located in Ramsey Count parks are listed on www.geocaching.com. Once on the website, users can search for cache locations based on coordinates and street addresses. You can also create a free account and sign in to view interactive maps of caches locations within the parks or view instructional videos. A smartphone app is also available.
