Birding Adventure

Virginia State Parks Birding Adventure Geocaching Program Geocaching in a Virginia State Park is a great way to combine technology with good old-fashioned outdoor fun. The basic concept is that someone places a cache in the woods, usually a small container with a log book, and people use modern GPS receivers to find it.


Geocaching can be an activity that you use to add fun to a camping trip, or it can be the main reason to visit a park. Most state parks have at least one geocache within its boundaries. The caches range from simple quick grabs easily reached from a park trail to more challenging multi-caches that require one to solve a puzzle or collect information at one site before you can move on to the next.


In addition to public caches, Virginia State Parks also has its own series that runs from March to the following December with a new theme each year. Log onto to learn more about geocaching and to find a list of caches with the coordinates needed to start your hunt.
