Welcome to OpenCaching North America!

Geocaching is an outdoor sport or activity in which cachers use a GPS receiver to find a "treasure" hidden by other participants. Many caches are secured in watertight containers, containing trinkets and/or a logbook in which cachers record their discovery of the cache. The coordinates to the location of the caches are stored in online databases, such as Opencaching NA, along with descriptions and instructions necessary to find them. This site is free to use with no fees whatsoever. You can organize your favorite caches, build custom searches, be instantly notified of new caches, seek and create caches of all types, export GPX queries and much more!

This is the official Opencaching site for North America and all US Territories. This site went live on August 18, 2010. Our goal is to have a database of quality, unique caches that, once approved by the OC Team, are enjoyed and rated by YOU, the geocaching community. Many of our listings are unique to our database and are not found on any other site. If you are the owner of a new cache, we invite you to add it to our database. If you have a cache listed on another site and would like to list it exclusively on our site, you are invited to do so. And yes, we allow Virtual Caches, but please read the section on them in our Terms of Use for more information. We also allow Moving Caches. Additionally, we allow several unique cache types not found on any other listing site, including MP3 (Podcast) Caches, Guest Book Caches, Dead Drop Caches, and BIT Caches. Please see the OC Wiki for more information on all cache types. And don't forget to visit the Forums!

Our new 5th anniversary Pathtags are finally on sale after several delays, most notably getting our free Pathtag back that anyone can use for their tags approved and listed on the Pathtags website. As with our first tag, we used the Pathtags fundraiser program, where we paid no money up front, and the tags are for sale in packs of 20 for $20. Currently listed as the most recent item for sale on the main page of The Geocoin Store's website. You can see the actual listing for the tag here on their website. Please consider buying a pack, and remember, people love to trade for Pathtags.
