Geocache Description:

Are you up to the challenge of a 5-star terrain rated cache?.... then this hydrocache located near Lake D'Arbonne State Park is for you.

This cache will require a little more than just a walk in the woods. You will need a boat, canoe, kayak, inflatable raft, or something along those lines in order to reach it. Make sure to enjoy the beauty of the area as you are making your way to and from the cache. It is a very scenic view. The main purpose of this cache is to give geocachers a different perspective of the natural wonders available here. You most likely will see all kinds of wildlife while on the lake, including many ducks. Bring a fishing pole with you (but make sure to have a valid fishing license) and maybe try your luck at catching a few, while searching for this cache.

The best (and easiest) way to start your adventure, is to use the boat launch located in Lake D'Arbonne State Park. The cache is located just a short distance from this point. However, you can approach the cache from other parts of Lake D'Arbonne if you like. You will be searching for a lock n' lock box.

If you don't have access to any kind of boat, then don't worry, as you can still find this cache. Boats and canoes can be rented on an hourly or daily basis from Lake D'Arbonne State Park, if needed. They also include life jackets, which are required by Louisiana law when boating on the waters here. Please, wear your life jacket and be safe while attempting this geocache....also make sure to secure your gps unit so it doesn't fall in the lake.

The North Louisiana Geocachers and the staff at Lake D'Arbonne State Park would like to dedicate this cache to the memory of Coolslaw/Steve who loved to spend time in this park, placing geocaches for others to enjoy.
