Geocahing in State Parks

This is Passport to Texas

Most smart phones are GPS enabled. And you can use that technology to your advantage when you participate in the Geocache Challenge. Our State Park Guide, Bryan Frazier has details.

Geocaching, for people who may not know about it, combines treasure hunt and scavenger hunt with outdoor recreation. And you find either little or big caches that are hidden by using a hand held GPS device.

It’s great for families—for people old and young—to get outside, to use technology, and find these little caches, and there’s a login book that they sign. The Texas Geocache Challenge is all summer long and there are 89 State parks that are participating in this.

And for this challenge, you can download the Texas Geocache Challenge from our website and check off all of the caches that you find, and send it into Texas Parks and Wildlife for prizes like geo coins that are commemorative, or stickers, or all kinds of things—especially that kids love. It’s a great way to really marry technology and outdoor recreation.

Thanks, Bryan.
