Celebrate Washington State Parks 100th birthday!
To celebrate Washington State Parks 100th birthday and help you enjoy as many state parks as possible, State Parks is presenting geocaching activities in 2013. While participating in one of our geocaching activities, you also will have the opportunity to learn about state parks, enjoy many different recreational opportunities and experience the great outdoors!
Geocaching is a popular, fast-growing outdoor activity embraced by people of all ages and abilities from avid hikers to families with young children. Players use a Global Positioning System (GPS), smartphone or other mobile device to find hidden containers (geocaches) or designated landmarks, sign their logbooks and then share their experiences online. Please check back, as more geocaching activities will be added to this page.
Geocaching during the winter: Some Washington state parks have seasonal closures in place for parks or areas within the parks. If the park gate is closed, geocachers may park outside and walk into the park or area to search for their cache. For information about individual state parks, see the State Parks winter schedule link on each individual park web page.
