Geocache Policy

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 website www.geocaching.com. 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.

Guidelines

Before a cache is posted, volunteers must check the website for inaccuracies.

The caches are generally waterproof containers filled with small treasures and a log. When visitors find them, they may take or leave a small item and sign the log.

  • Park hours are from sunrise to sunset.
  • All dogs must be leashed.
  • Hiking is not allowed on groomed winter ski trails or when turf trails are closed.
  • Tread lightly: do not place a cache in an environmentally sensitive area.
  • Isanti County retains the right to remove a cache if it is causing undo impact on the habitat area.
  • Caches are not to be buried.
  • Caches are not to contain offensive, dangerous or illegal items.
  • Individuals placing caches are responsible for monitoring and maintaining them.
