Geocaching is a type of global treasure hunt where people search for caches or hidden stashes of objects. Geocaching can also be described as a series of hide-and-seek games, where hiders provide online clues for seekers. Seekers use global positioning system (GPS) devices to find hidden containers called Geocaches.
Geocaching is an outdoor recreational activity that is great for a family or individual who is looking to explore the community. Simply create a Geocaching account and download the app to get started. All caches are located in accessible public places, so you can participate at any time.

For a geocacher, the goal of completing a tour is to earn a Geocoin. To play, find caches and record the codes to earn points. You can also shop in local businesses or stay in any Stillwater hotel or short-term rental to accumulate points. 20 total points must be collected to earn your coin.
