Geocaching is an extremely popular activity in Minnesota state parks. Since 2008, well over 1,200 geocaches have been hidden in Minnesota state parks, recreation areas and waysides!
Apply for a geocaching permit if you want to hide a geocache for other people to find in a state park, recreation area, or wayside. It may take up to 30 days for your application to be processed.
Here's what you need to know if you want to hide a geocache in a Minnesota state forest.
