Alabama State Parks Geocache Policy and Permit
To ensure the safety of our guests & to maintain proper management of our natural resources, a geocaching policy was established, which requires that ALL geocaches hidden in Alabama State Parks be permitted.
BEFORE hiding any geocaches, please review and submit a signed permit to the Park Manager or designated representative at each State Park. After the Park Manager or designee receives & reviews the permit, you will be contacted for disposition.
Please read the current Alabama State Parks Geocaching Policy.
To place a geocache, the park must have the current Alabama State Park Geocaching Permit on file.
Gulf State Park is home to many types of wildlife, including alligators. Please be aware at all times. For detailed information, please see our Wildlife Safety recommendations.
