About the Location:

This series of three six-stage multi-caches are located in Meinert Park in northern Muskegon County along the Lake Michigan shoreline. This park does have posted hours from dawn to 10:00pm. This park does have a county daily $5 fee or $20 annual permit requirement, so we have worked hard to make this a memorable cache series at this scenic location. There is plenty of parking, beach shoreline, play ground, grills, and picnic tables to meet any family’s needs. For those attempting all three multi-caches in one visit, start with Davy Jone's quest first to minimize the walking. Be warned there are some mosquitoes; bring bug spray so you can enjoy the cache. Other than the first couple stages of the Davy Jones series all cache stage are high dry; these first couple stage could get a little mucky in rainy weather. The posted parking coordinates are central to the start of the Davy Jone's and Black Pearl’s Treasure Chests, along with the final of the World’s End Treasure Chest. It would a nice location for grabbing a weekend lunch before moving on to the next two multi-caches. For those interested in camping, follow this link to Meinert Park.
