Geocaching and Orienteering at Parker Dam State Park

Parker Dam State Park provides navigational recreation opportunties for both the “high-tech” and “low-tech” enthusiasts. 

Geocaching, Geotours, and Letterboxing

Geocaching is a high-tech scavenger hunt. GPS units are used to find historic places and big trees in the park. There are several geocaches and letterboxes in the park and surrounding state forest.

Brochures are available at the park office. Contact the park office for more information.

New caches must be approved by the park manager.


A small beginner-level orienteering course is located behind the park office, beginning near the Souders Trail trailhead.

This course was created and installed as a Girl Scout Gold Award Project during 2011.

Information about this course is available at the park office.
