Try Geocaching, a world-wide phenomenon that uses hand-held GPS (Global Positioning Satellite) units along with satellite technology, to find deliberately hidden objects similar to a treasure hunt.
Informational brochures about Geocaching, and some of our GPS activities, are located at the Battlefield Visitor Center. Try locating our specially-placed park caches.
You can also go to http://www.geocaching.com to get coordinates of the many caches hidden near the park in the surrounding Farmville and Amelia County communities.
Simply stop in at the Battlefield Visitor Center during scheduled open hours and we’ll get you started with this adventure-filled, family-friendly activity available to the public all year long.
