Geocache Description:

Join us for a weekend of Food, Finds, Fellowship
AND Fun in the Ocala National Forest!

Florida Finder's Fest at the
Fish and Wildlife Commisions's
Ocala Conservation Center and Youth Camp
on Eaton Lake in the ONF!

On Saturday, at 8:00AM, we will have several semi-competitive, somewhat organized, get lost in the woods, geo-fun kinda caching activities. There will be additional activities in the forest from Thursday through Sunday. (See Activities below. More details to follow.)

After the caching activities on Saturday, we will be serving cooked animal, an assortment of side items, and ice cold drinks. No need to bring anything for dinner on Saturday, but attendees should plan on bringing their own food and drinks for the rest of the day and/or weekend, though there will be additional events with food.

The posted coordinates are for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission's Ocala Conservation Center and Youth Camp in the Ocala National Forest.

Watch for an anouncement regarding the activation of our registration and information web site.


CAMPING!

The Ocala Conservation Center and Youth Camp is a beautiful site on Eaton Lake. We will be posting information regarding camping, which will be available from Thursday Afternoon, October 25th, through Sunday Morning, October 28th. While there is limited availability of electricity at the camp, there is none in the camping area and no individual site hookups.


BUNKHOUSES

There will also be rustic bunkhouse accommodations available. These have electricity and heat/AC, but no running water. Bath house is nearby. No linens are provided.

We will have a Men's and a Women's bunkhouse, and a coed bunkhouse for couples and families. Prices and contact information for reservations, will be posted in the coming months.


OTHER CAMPING AND LODGING

For those with large RVs, or looking for campsites with electrical hookups or those wanting to stay in hotels, we will be posting information about other available camping and lodging.


Activities

The "philosophy" of Florida Finders Fest is that there is something for all cachers. If you're a numbers ho, there are lots of caches. If you are looking for "quality", you'll be in a national forest with lots of great new caches and lots of long established caches. Hiking, kayaking, drive ups, off road, and everything in between, its all there.

If you just want to cool out with some fellow cachers, there is plenty of opportunity for that as well.

We do have a number of semi-organized activities. Participate in some, all, or none, as you are so inclined. The adventures will include The Gauntlet, Poker Run, Best Team T-Shirt, Great Coin and Travel Bug Race, and more.


In addition to these activities, there are more activities and events to be announced. Stay tuned!
