GPS Adventures
Date: 11/19/2013   To  11/19/2014
Location: Throughout the park
Description: Try Geocaching, a world-wide craze that uses hand-held Global Positioning Units along with satellite technology to find objects hidden in the woods. Informational brochures about Geocaching, and some of our GPS activities, are located in an outdoor rack at the Park Office. Try "Find A Phrase", or "1940 BC". You can also go to to get coordinates of the many caches hidden near the park in the Cumberland State Forest. If you don't have a GPS app on your phone, or your own GPS device, we have units available for rent by the day for $10.00 or half-day for $6.00. Simply stop in at the Park Office during scheduled open hours and we'll get you started.
