Placing caches in state forest.

Recommended Posts

I was thinking lately about placing a cache in the Michaux state forest. Was wondering how you go about getting your cache approved by the DCNR. Is the a fee to hide?

A quick Google turned up the Geocaching page on the DCNR site. There is a link to the guidelines that describe the permit process.

The $30 fee is for hiding a cache in a PA State PARK, good for three years.  That's why there's so few caches in PA State Parks.

 

Caches in PA State Forests are subject to the same DCNR policy, but without the fee.

You might want to look at the State Forest's  COVID information page

 

And the wiki regional page regarding COVID and cache publications. It says the information is accurate as of April 2nd, so you might need to ask a reviewer about new publications.

There have been no updates since April 2nd to the Pennsylvania policy for publication of events and geocaches.  We're happy to publish guideline-compliant new caches in State Forests, because that's a place where someone might to go get physical exercise - an exception to the state's "Stay at Home" order.

 

We did add a paragraph to the PA Wiki section today regarding maintenance expectations.
