Camping and Caching

Caching and Camping North Dakota Style 2017 is the annual event held by the North Dakota Geocaching Association. The event is a chance for geocachers to gather to go geocaching, camping, socialize, and enjoy the great outdoors. It is also an opportunity for non-geocachers who are interested in the hobby to come and learn about geocaching. The event is capped with a potluck dinner and membership meeting Saturday evening.

Camping/Lodging Information:Camping will be at the Lakeside Marina RV Park. The NDGCA will reserve a block of 20 camping spots and the four cabins in early spring. They will be held until two weeks before the event. Any unreserved spots out of the block will be released to the general public two weeks before the event. Geocachers who wish to camp at the Lakeside Marina RV Park are responsible for making their own reservations with the campground. There are also plenty of hotels available in Jamestown for those people who do not wish to camp.

There is no charge participate, although free-will donations will be accepted to help the NDGCA cover the cost of the event.

The events are open to all geocachers and people who are interested in learning about geocaching.

The times and locations are subject to change, especially the Parkhurst spot since it will depend on how full the reservoir is after the spring melt.
