Campfire Talk: All About Geocaching

Join us for a fun campfire talk in the Great Outdoors! Campfire Talks are a series of educational & entertaining programs located outside in DeSoto State Park. Campfire programs are held many Friday & Saturday evening (June –October) in our large campfire ring inside the improved campground. Talks are for all ages, & open to everyone!

 Need a reason to get outside as a family? Geocaching is a scavenger hunt where users with a GPS or smartphone search for a cache hidden at a specified location using published coordinates. Caches are hidden worldwide, and have even been placed on the International Space Station! Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location. Find out what geocaching is and how you do it yourself!
