Geocaching is a high-tech treasure hunting game played throughout the world by adventure seekers equipped with GPS devices. The basic idea is to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, outdoors and then share your experiences online. Geocaching is enjoyed by people from all age groups, with a strong sense of community and support for the environment.

There are 646,633 active geocaches around the world.

Cache In Trash Out is an ongoing environmental initiative supported by the worldwide geocaching community. Since 2002, geocachers have been dedicated to cleaning up parks and other cache-friendly places around the world.

Once you have found a geocache, sign the logbook and return the geocache to its original location. Afterward, share your geocaching stories and photos online!

Geocaching is free!  There are no membership fees to have access to most caches!  There is a "Premium" membership option which lists additional caches and has other interesting features.  You simply log on to the website, create a username and password, and enter the WORLD of geocaching!
This is truly a worldwide game!

Currently there are 30 to find in Wompatuck listed on the "free" Geocaching site.  Other caches may be available to "premium" members.

Geocaching will get you into the great outdoors of Wompatuck and will lead you to interesting locations throughout the park.  Some are incredibly fascinating, some are incredibly beautiful, and some are just plain fun! This is a great FAMILY activity!  Get out there and enjoy your park!

When you log onto the geocaching site, select HIDE AND SEEK A CACHE and use the keyword search for WOMPATUCK.  This will generate a short list of caches.  You can select any of these sites to access the google map for the entire park. 

Please remember to protect our park!  Always Cache In Trash Out!  And please be careful if you have to bushwhack - protect the environment!

If you locate a cache that is in a dangerous location or is in an environmentally sensitive area, please contact the park supervisor, Steve Gammon at 781-749-7160 or steve.gammon@state.ma.us.
