According to geocaching.com, there are approximately 64 geocaches under 20
miles and 124 benchmarks within 15 miles of ArdPark Cabins and
Campgrounds' zip code. That is a lot of nearby geocaching opportunity in the
great Missouri Ozarks near the Huzzah River and Courtois Creek!
Geocaching is a serious, world-wide sport embraced by all ages that involves
hunting for treasures hidden by others in the great outdoors. Geocache seekers
equip themselves with a GPS device, hit the countryside in search of a
geocache placed in a specific location by another and log their findings on a
geocaching-related website. Often when a geocache is found, some trinkets are
taken and new ones are left for the next adventure "hunters." There are many
different kinds of geocaches such as the traditional geocache, EarthCaches,
virtual caches, event caches and puzzle caches to name just a few. Some caches
also include trackable items such as geocoins.

Benchmark hunting is a similar outdoor game enjoyed by many
and it operates in a fashion similar to geocaching. geocaching.com
is a comprehensive geocaching website that provides a great
explanation of benchmark hunting and the fun reasons for doing
it. There is even a benchmark on ArdPark property!
Devoted geocachers, benchmark hunting fanatics, and those new
to either sport can spend as little as a day or as long as a week
playing these ultra-modern seek and find games before retreating
to a peaceful cabin or private camping acre at ArdPark!
