Check out our list and map of Geocaching Groups and Organizations, a list of orgs we "vetted" with input from community volunteers and Lackeys. This list currently includes groups in North America, parts of Europe and Australia.
Simply select a location of interest to find local information. These are independently operated and created to support the community; Geocaching.com does not manage them.
Participation in a geocaching group can be very rewarding although certainly not required. It's just another fun way for you to meet geocachers and to extend your level of involvement with the community.
You might also try reaching out to local geocaching groups when visiting new places. They may be able to connect you with someone who can guide you to the best geocaches in that part of the world.
For areas not yet included on our map, check out our regional discussion subforums.
We expect our list to grow with the addition of groups and organizations that are active in their communities and are contributing to geocaching in positive ways. Reach out to us with the group you'd like to see included.
