Welcome to OpenCaching North America! Geocaching is about having fun outdoors while using GPS-enabled devices to find "treasure" hidden by other participants. Typical geocaches are small watertight containers that holds a logbook in which the finder can record their visit. The container may also hold small trinkets that can be traded. To learn more about geocaching visit our wiki pages.

This is the official OpenCaching site for North America (including Central America and the Caribbean) 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. OCNA offers twelve cache types, including virtual, webcam, and moving caches. We also offer a number of unique cache types: BIT Caches, Guest Book Caches, MP3 (Podcast) Caches, and Benchmarks. The site is 100% free to use with no "regular vs premium member" functions or restrictions.

Welcome to OpenCaching North America.

 

Geocaching is an outdoor sport or activity in which cachers use a GPS connected device to find hidden containers placed by other participants. Caches contain items for exchange and a logbook in which the finder records their discovery of the cache.  Finds are then recorded digitally on the OpenCaching website where the coordinates of the cache's location are stored along with the description and instructions necessary to find it.

 

OpenCaching North America is completely free to use and is maintained by member volunteers.

    That is a large tree! We enjoyed the sound of running water from the flowing creek close to the cache as we hunted. This is a nice container with a neat little stamp in it. Thanks for bringing us out this way and thanks for the cache. Found 9/27/12, forgot to log!
