Geocaching is a high-tech treasure hunting game played throughout the world by adventure seekers equipped with GPS devices. The basic idea is to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, outdoors and then share your experiences online. Geocaching is enjoyed by people from all age groups, with a strong sense of community and support for the environment. -

Accepted Rules of Geocaching

  • If you take something from the cache, leave something of equal of greater value.
  • Write about your find in the cache logbook
  • Log your experience at
The Fort Smith National Historic Site has GPS devices at the front desk in the Visitors' Center for loan if you do not have one. A Ranger will give you a tutorial, if needed, as to its functions.

Currently, our Geocache program includes a single cache, located inside a building on the park grounds. While points of interest occur on the grounds, there are NO outdoor caches at this time; please do NOT dig anywhere within the park boundries. As with all National Park Service areas, digging or otherwise disturbing the ground is prohibited.

Any input that Geo Cachers might give to improve our program is highly appreciated; please contact us.
