Since the commercialization of geographical positioning systems—or GPS—geocaching has caught on as an amusive treasure hunting activity enjoyed by people, young and old, all over the world. Hidden containers, referred to as caches, are filled with notes or objects that previous participants left for the next person to find. Sometimes items are related to the locations in which they are found, but they can also be random. What will you find?
Picnic tables and gazebos are offered at various locations throughout the area; however, you can also seek out and stake a claim on one of the many beaches or clearings on the islands.
