Geocaching

Geocaching is a great outdoor activity where participants use a GPS or GPS enabled device to locate containers called geocaches or caches. Those geocachers with the skill and determination to find the geocaches will find either a log book to record their success, and/or trinkets to trade at the next geocache they locate. Okaloosa County has been divided into four quadrants, with six geocaches in parks around each of the county's quadrants.
