Geocaching

Geocaching is an outdoor adventure game for owners of Global Positioning Systems (GPS). The basic idea is for individuals to set up a cache and share the location on the Geocaching website. The game encourages physical activity and also introduces non-traditional park users to the park system. Isanti County currently has caches located within its parks.

Responsibility

Isanti County parks division will allow the activity to continue as long as the guidelines are followed.
