Geocaching in DeSoto State Park
Alabama State Parks recognizes Geocaching as an opportunity for additional outdoor activities for individuals and families at our parks.

To ensure the safety of our guests and to maintain proper management of our natural resources a geocaching policy was established, which requires that all geocaches hidden in Alabama State Parks be permitted.
Before hiding any geocaches please review and submit a signed permit to the Park Manager at each State Park. After the Park Manager or designee receives and reviews the permit you will be contacted for disposition.
