Geocaching

Do you like finding hidden things?  Exploring areas you've never been to following breadcrumb hints?  Have you tried geocaching?

Have you found this one yet?  We did!  (Somewhere near Jackson Guard...)

All visitors on the Eglin reservation must have a permit and carry the permit on their person at all times.  See our Outdoor Recreation Permits page for information about which permits are available.

Please see our Outdoor Recreation, Hunting and Freshwater Fishing Regulations for more information. 

Eglin reservation prohibits any soil disturbance, so all geocaches should be above-ground.  Geocaching should have minimal impact to the environment and you should always be conscientious about land use ethics.  Pay special attention when searching to not come in contact with UXO.  Only search in OPEN Areas.  Access to Closed Areas is prohibited.  

Always let somebody know where you are going and when you plan to return.  Plan your trip well, know the route and road conditions.  Pack water and supplies that you may need: extra batteries for your GPS, cell phone, map, etc.
