For anyone who has never experienced geocaching, it is a recreational activity that takes place outside, where participants use a GPS or GPS enabled device to locate containers called “geocaches” or “caches”. The caches are at minimum a container and a log book inside the container at specific GPS coordinates. Some geocaches contain little trinkets that you can take when you visit the cache and keep or trade at the next cache you visit.
• A geocache has been placed in several of the Counties public parks.
• The County has been divided into quadrants, each containing 6 (or more) caches.
• We have listed all of the available caches below for your use.
• The geocaches can also be found under the username Okaloosa County BCC on www.geocaching.com.
While supplies last, a custom Okaloosa County Geocache Trail coin will be given to people who complete all requirements:
• Find and log a minimum of 20 of the geocaches on the Okaloosa County Geocache Trail.
• You must find 4 Okaloosa County Geocache Trail geocaches in each quadrant for a total of 16 geocaches
• Plus, 4 other Okaloosa County Geocache Trail caches from any quadrant from the list below.
• Get your Okaloosa County Geocache Trail Passport found here.
• Okaloosa County geocaches within the Okaloosa County Geocache Trail are larger containers with a log book for you to log your visit.
• On an aluminum disk mounted inside, you will find a 5 digit alphanumeric code.
• Log your visit on geocaching.com.
• Log/Write the Cache Name, Date Found and this code on your passport .
• After collecting the required amount of caches, bring your competed passport, or mail completed passport to: 1759 S. Ferdon Blvd. Crestview, FL 32536.
