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.
If you don’t have a GPS app on your phone, or your own GPS device, the park has several units available for rent “By the Day” for $10.00 or “Half-Day” for $6.00.
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.
