Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location. A cache (container) contains a logbook and may contain treasures. Remember, if you take something, leave something of equal or greater value in return. The only necessities are a GPS device or a GPS-enabled mobile phone so that you can navigate to the cache, and a geocache membership (free version available).


The CLWS Park Interpreter offers free programs for campers and community members at the campground. Programs include interpretive hikes, kids programs and evening presentations. Visit the campground office for programs happening during your stay or check your email prior to arrival.


Hiking trails (that pass by the climbing crags) are located behind the campsite with various access points from the public parking lot and the road to the group campsite. Our park interpreter also offers guided interpretive hikes in July and August.
