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”

Other Geocaching Events: With room to roam and various lodging accommodations, Jellystone Park Campgrounds are a great place to get involved in geocaching. Many Jellystone Park campgrounds have their own geocaches and participate with special geocache events and activities. Check out the other geocache events happening in 2011 at our family campgrounds.
