In fact, www.geocahing.com states that, “In the next 7 days there are going to be 276 [geocaching] events in 46 US States.” In addition, the site even lists several events in Germany, Canada, and 29 other countries as well. However, for locals looking to get their treasure hunt fix, Pennyrile State Resort Park in Dawson Springs, KY will be holding a Geocaching Weekend from this upcoming Friday, October 8th, until Sunday, October 10th.

But what is geocaching really all about?

Well, the basic idea of geocaching events is to locate hidden containers called “geocaches” through the use of a Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) receiver and a set of “treasure coordinates.” After fining the geocache, many share their experiences through online communities and even go as far as hiding the treasure in a new spot for other adventure seekers to find in the future. Overall, though, geocaching is really about getting outside and having a good time in nature. To find out more on geocaching in general, or to view a calendar of planned events throughout the US, visit the following link: http://www.geocaching.com/.

As far as Pennyrile Forest State Resort Park’s Geocaching Weekend, their official site explains that, “We have been hosting this event since 2005. There will be a night cache, find the most micro caches contest, first-to-find cache, and traditional caches. We guarantee at least 30 caches to find.”

In addition, the site lists participation fees, which are as follows: $15 per geocacher or $20 per family. Event participants are also eligible for a 10% discount on lodging within the park.

For more information on the event and Pennyrile State Resort Park itself, such as attendance times for each of the three days (Oct. 8, 9, and 10) or directions, please visit their official site at http://parks.ky.gov/findparks/resortparks/pf/. You can also reach them by phone at (270) 797-3421 or at 1-800-325-1711.
