Geocaching at Wood Lake
Did you know there are geocaches hidden inside of Wood Lake's 150 acres, waiting to be discovered? If you love being outdoors, exploring new places, or going on a nature hunt, this is the perfect activity for you!
Geocaching is a great outdoor recreation activity for all ages and experience levels (beginners welcome!). Geocaching uses the Global Positioning System (GPS) where points are located on a GPS receiver or mobile device to find hide-and-seek containers called "geocaches" or "caches” hidden at specific locations and marked by coordinates. A typical cache is a small, waterproof container with a logbook in which notes can be added by the finder.
