Park Explorer - Find - 300



Make a find* within the borders of a National Park.


Are geocaches allowed in National Parks in your country? If you live in the US, the answer is "no" for the most part. While rules vary slightly from park to park, physical caches are rare in US National Parks. However, geocaches that do not have a physical container are often abundant. Don't let the lack of physical caches deter you from geocaching in National Parks. Virtual caches are still in some parks, and earth caches are currently allowed with approval. (Although approval can be tough to get!)

1) Find and log a geocache or letterbox hidden within the borders of a National Park.

Note: While we encourage you to visit a national park, national monuments will be accepted too. A list of national parks can be found here. PLEASE DO NOT use a state park, national forest or national recreation area for this objective.

2) Take a photo of yourself at the hide location and post it on Instagram or Twitter with the tag #QuestScouts. Alternatively, you can also share your hide in our Facebook group.

3) Tell us what cache you found in the comments below! If applicable, include the geocaching or letterboxing number. 

*A "find/hide" can be either a geocache or letterbox. Not familiar with either? Watch this video by Groundspeak, the #1 lister of geocaches or read about letterboxing from Atlas Quest. However, if you've never geocached or letterboxed, we highly suggest you start with a different find objective. It's best to make 100+ finds before you hide.
