Geocaching

Be a part of a real-world treasure hunt! Geocaching at Callaway Resort & Gardens spans more than 40 caches across our 2,500 acres of natural landscape. You can find them all on Geocaching.com.

How to Geocache:

  • Plug coordinates of a cache into GPS unit – follow direction and distance it tells you to go.
  • Read clues to the geocache to help pinpoint exact location (GPS units aren’t perfect, especially under tree cover).
  • The direction the arrow points on the GPS is the straight line direction to the cache (“as the crow flies”) – you may have to go a bit out of the way, but you will be able to stay on paths for the most part.

Types of Caches

  • Bag or container with logbook inside. Sign and record coordinates, and make note you found it online.
  • Waterproof containers with trade items inside – if you take something, replace it with something. Items include small toys, books, trinkets, postcards, etc.
  • Activity caches – an activity to do at cache site (e.g. look for something around the actual cache, draw something, solve a riddle, etc.)

*Please note, geocaching is an independent activity. Callaway Gardens is home to many caches but is not responsible for maintaining them or providing additional information. Gardens admission is required.
