How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
This is a quick and easy cache designed to introduce you to a delightful park. It's a convenient place to take a break and stretch your legs on the way to or from the coast. This cache is wheelchair accessible and stroller friendly.
Please take a bit of time to enjoy this delightful park. It's a perfect place to stop on the way to or from the coast. There's a playground for kids, restrooms, exercise circuit, picnic tables, and more. Enjoy the memorial to Raymond Carver (famed writer of short stories and poems, born here), the Liberty Tree, and wood carvings by artist Susan Miller (who also did the carvings for the Clatskanie Library across the street and Hump's Restaurant in town).
Across the bridge is more of the park, including a boat ramp, bike/skateboard park, and a memorial to Lewis and Clark. And please take a moment to say a quiet "thank you" when you pass by the Clatskanie Veteran's Memorial.
There used to be a padlock to keep the cache contents safe but the loop for it was broken off, so please be careful replacing the cache lid.
