GeoCaching on the Chequamegon - Nicolet National Forest

Geocaching has become a popular recreation activity and continues to rise in popularity. Here are guidelines when geocaching on the Chequamegon-Nicolet:

1. A permit or any other type of authorization is NOT needed to hide a geocache on the Forest. It is considered a dispersed recreation activity similar to hunting, berry picking, or fishing where no Forest permit is required.

2. Geocachers should not be digging holes for hiding their geocaches.

3. We recommend all geocachers follow the guidelines set out by the "Wisconsin Geocaching Assocation". This information is located at their web site (you will be leaving the Forest Service web site): See the "General Cache Hiding Rules and Tips" under the "Hiding a Cache" link.
