Geocaching Challenge – there is more fun for everyone at Maine State Parks!
Discover 8 geocaches as you explore Maine’s spectacular State Parks and Historic Sites during the summer season*. From historic forts to our deepest wilderness, the Maine State Parks GeoTour offers something for everyone! *Note: Caches are taken in during the off/winter season for refurbishing.
HOW TO PLAY:
- Create your login with geocaching.com from any of the Park links listed below.
- Download the GPS coordinates for each location to your GPS unit or mobile device. (Use the link for each park below.)
