Geocaching Series

In honor of National Get Outdoors Day, we're launching a new Geocaching Series in Fishers Parks! 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.

At its simplest level, geocaching requires these 8 steps:

  1. Review the Geocaching Policy for Fishers Parks
  2. Register for a free Basic Membership at geocaching.com
  3. Visit the Hide & Seek a Cache page
  4. Enter your postal code and click "search"
  5. Choose any geocache from the list and click on its name
  6. Enter the coordinates of the geocache into your GPS Device. (This can be your smart phone! All you need is the free geocaching app!)
  7. Use your GPS device to assist you in finding the hidden geocache
  8. Sign the logbook and return the geocache to its original location
  9. Share your geocaching stories and photos online
