Attention Law Enforcement, DNR, County Conservation, and all governing bodies. Here is a one stop location to find the most popular "Geocaching" sites.
When people call in and report strange activity, or containers, it may be a harmless geocacher or geocache.
We understand that safety decisions need to be made in split seconds, but we think this tool could be helpful to you in non emergency situations.
Geocaching.com actually offers Law Enforcement and Parks Departments a FREE premium account to assist with maintaining safety in your areas. Please visit the link below. http://www.geocaching.com/parksandpolice/
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.
We’re a collection of hikers, bikers, techno geeks, treasure seekers, scouts, families and just plain nature lovers who deserve to geocache the way we want.
And that’s exactly why we created this site – to put the power back in the hands of the community. And to finally give us all a voice in the way geocaching grows.
LETTERBOXING is an intriguing pastime combining navigational skills and rubber stamp artistry in a charming "treasure hunt" style outdoor quest. A wide variety of adventures can be found to suit all ages and experience levels.
Munzee is a real world scavenger hunt game where items are found in the real world and captured using your smartphone. You then level up and gain rank based on your score. Points are obtained by capturing other people's munzees or when your deployed munzees are captured by someone else. Munzee is based off of the fundamentals of geocaching and adds another layer of fun to the hunt.
Earthcache.org doesn’t have as many geocaches on file as some of the other websites listed here, but there is still a significant number to choose from in many different countries.
Terracaching.com has active caches from all over the world, in 48 countries all told. The site has wonderful resources for geocachers, but Terracaching.com does have one flaw. In order to view information on Terracaching.com you must be a member, and in order to become a member you must be “sponsored,” or recommended, by two other geocachers already in the Terracaching.com community. It’s a pain, but once you do it Terracaching.com will be a good resource for all your geocaching needs.
Navicache.com isn’t as flashy as Geocaching.com, but it still has thousands of geocaches logged for any region of the United States. Navicache.com does have international geocaches, but the majority of them are located in Germany. You don’t need a membership to view geocache information on Navicache.com, but you will need to create an account if you want to add a new geocache to the site.
GPSGames.org is a great way to make geocaching more entertaining. It contains listings of geocaches that can be incorporated into different types of games. Some of the options include GeoDashing, Minute War, GeoPoker and GeoGolf. If simple geocaching isn’t enough for you, GPSGames.org will probably have something to challenge you.
We hope this information was helpful today, and in the future, Thank you for looking.
