New ‘Submit a Cache Listing’ Wizard

Banner from "Submit a New Cache Listing" Wizard

The new “Submit a Cache Listing” page walks geocachers through an easy six-step process to list a geocache. Creating a cache listing has never been more streamlined or easier to understand. You’re able to focus on what’s important – submitting a well-crafted cache listing.

The “Submit a New Cache Listing” process is now easier than ever before. An online tool or wizard walks you through each step. The steps flow from “Cache Basics” to “Location,” then “Additional Waypoints,” “Description,” “Container & Ratings,” and finish with “Submit Cache.” There are fundamental steps that cannot be skipped – such as a name for the cache and coordinates for the location – as well as optional steps. There are helpful tips and information throughout the process.

Before beginning the process you should read the Geocache Listing Requirements and Guidelines. Knowing the guidelines helps ensure submitting a new cache goes smoothly.

Here are some quick notes on the new process –

  • Attaching and editing images will need to be completed after a cache page is created.
  • Editing a completed cache page – published or unpublished – will revert to the old form for now.
  • At the end of the new process, you will have the option to save your work and come back to it OR preview it and then submit the cache listing.
  • The development process included months of testing with the volunteer reviewer team, to whom we are grateful for their input and feedback.
