What is geocaching?
Geocaching is the use of GPS technology to locate sites called caches. These caches may be a small box containing a log book hidden in a hollow tree stump or a “virtual” cache leading you to a site for an answer to a question.
There are over 2,000,000 active geocaches and over 5,000,000 geocachers throughout the world.
The Wood County Park District is proud to take part in this modern day, free “treasure hunt” and has six official caches located in six different parks.
In addition to our Park District caches, there are many other privately placed caches (at least one in every park). These caches were placed by individuals who have completed a geocache permit and obtained permission by the Park District.

Practice "Cache In, Trash Out".
While out geocaching, bring a bag with you to pick up trash along the way!

Just wanted to say we had a wonderful time camping last weekend! My girls have talked a lot about what we did and how much fun they had and that makes us very happy! Keep offering all the great Wood County park programs, they are a tremendous value to our community! - Heather Janes
