Geocache at North Carolina Campground

The challenge is on! See if you can find the 5 caches hidden somewhere along the nature trails that weave throughout the 64-acre Jellystone Park™ Campground in Marion , North Carolina. The trails, which feature river stop-offs and mountain views, will take you along Boo Boo™ River and through lush natural habitats of Yogi Bear’s Outback. Most of the trails are moderate, however Ranger’s Revenge is a steep grade, surely to test the endurance of our campers. Each cache is stocked with different trinkets, compasses and Yogi related gear. Trail seekers are guided by a Geomate Jr. that we rent @ the front desk for $5.

In addition to everyday accessibility, one of the unique elements we feature is the quest for Yogi Bear’s Treasure, this is a scheduled activity that will allow families to work together to seek out clues in each cache to find the Treasure. Each Cache will have a clue as to which cache they need to find next, almost like a micro “Amazing Race” in our own backyard. At the end of the quest, Yogi Bear will appear from the woods and congratulate the victors with gold “Yogi Bear Medallions”

Geocaching: A Modern Day Treasure Hunting Experience

Geocaching (pronounced geo-cashing) is an activity that combines technology and the great outdoors. It is a modern day treasure hunting experience; a game of hide and seek. Anyone can become a geocacher at anytime.

There are two types of geocachers: hiders and seekers. The “hider” hides a cache and announces its GPS coordinates on a web site such as geocaching.com. “Seekers” then look up the caches that are located near an area they want to search. The coordinates of the cache are typed into a handhelp GPS unit, then the seeker follows it to the site, typically within 6-20 feet of the cache. They are on their own at that point and must follow their intuition, rely on previous experience, or turn to clues provided by the hider or previous seekers to find the exact location of the cache.

The cache is a water tight container that usually consists of a log book or sheet and small trinkets. Once the cache is found, the seeker then signs the book, takes a trinket, replaces the trinket with one of their own, and hides the cache in the same spot so the next seeker may have the pleasure of the find. Keep in mind caches should always be family friendly since many families use geocaching as an opportunity for family bonding and exercise. 

Check out this video from geocaching.com that explains the basics. And you can read more information about geocaching events at Jellystone Park campgrounds on this blog.
