High-Tech Hide and Seek in the Great North Dakota Outdoors

Geocaching popular in North Dakota's state parks

Geocaching has been around for many years nationwide, and for more than a dozen years within North Dakota state parks. Cross Ranch State Park was the site of the first geocache. Over the last several years, geocaching became yet another way for people to enjoy the outdoors by exploring scenic trails and historic aspects of our North Dakota State Parks. Utilizing a Global Positioning System (GPS), technology savvy visitors can be taken to a unique trail, historic place, an interesting structure, a beautiful view or a natural wonder. This high-tech treasure hunt provides outdoor adventure that all ages can enjoy. Park users armed with a GPS unit can hunt caches while exploring the parks and their recreational opportunities.
