North Louisiana Geocaching
Our great friend and fellow geocacher, Short Circuit/Richard Graythen, has passed away. We will miss him tremendously, and our community has lost one of the best there was, as he was always unselfishly helping everyone he ever met. RIP, my friend.
Welcome to North Louisiana Geocaching
This site is dedicated to the North Louisiana geocaching community as a way for everyone to learn about the sport and to promote geocaching in a safe and ethical way.

Please feel free to join our website, which is maintained by local geocachers who want to share their passion for the game with everyone.
OK, I have found this site, now what exactly is this geocaching?
In short, geocaching is a worldwide scavenger hunt game utilizing global positioning satellites (GPS) to locate hidden containers (aka caches) that were placed out by other game participants. It is a family friendly game that encourages persons of all ages to get outside and visit places they may never ordinarily go. The premier website to search for caches in this area is www.geocaching.com. This is where all our local geocaches will be listed. You will need to register at their website to begin your hunt.

Day Trips Around The Area
We are going to try something new, to use this part of the site to showcase cache sites that we think others may enjoy visiting and finding the geocaches located there, but are easily accessible in a single day road trip.
The three caches pertain to interesting local history and were all placed out by Fatman and Robin.
Louisiana's First is about possibly the first in Louisiana, but the only train robbery in north Louisiana.
The Mysterious Grave has a great story to it. You probably don't want to go at night after reading it.
There She Blows pertains to an oil well driller hitting a gas pocket, similar to what happened in Smackover, Arkansas.
When visiting these great caches, make sure to find all of Fatman and Robins caches in the area. They all have a history, and as with all their placements are of the full size variety that the kids (including the grown up ones) enjoy. No micros.
