Things to know before getting started

  1. The program is available from May to October
  2. Obtain all the co-ordinates for the geocaches from geocaching.com. Use either a GPS, iPhone or Blackberry to find the caches (when using a smartphone, download the geocaching app).
  3. Respect the natural surroundings by staying on marked trails – all geocaches are directly accessible from trails or public areas. 
  4. Please do not leave anything (trade items) inside of the geocaches as they may attract wildlife.
  5. At this time, only Parks Canada staff may place geocaches in the park.
  6. If geocaching with a large number of people, split into groups of 15 or less. This is a precautionary policy to ensure adequate protection of the park’s natural and cultural heritage.
