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.
