Geocache Description:

Dare to Go...Geocaching

What: Cache Bash 2006
When: Saturday, April 22 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Where: Jester Park Lodge

Join Polk County Conservation to celebrate their 50th Anniversary on Saturday, April 22, 2006 and search for over 25 geocaches hidden in Jester Park.

Participants will be given coordinates for the geocache locations as they arrive. At each cache, participants will stamp their passport. At the end of the day, participants will turn in their passport for a chance to win prizes.

Geocachers will be on hand to teach newcomers how to use a GPS and the ins and outs of geocaching. GPS units will be available for check out. Participants can come and go throughout the day. A catered lunch will be available for participants at the Jester Park Lodge.

This event is held in cooperation with Great Plains Geocaching and Iowa Geocachers Organization.

Registration Fee:
$15 for the first person on a team (or in a family), $8 for each additional person. Registration includes geocaching activities, a catered lunch, snacks and a chance at some prizes. A non-lunch option is available for $10 per team. This includes the geocaching activities and a chance at the prizes but no lunch.

Pre-registration is required by April 14. Visit Great Plains Geocaching, or contact Polk CCB at 515-323-5300 to register. Credit cards will be accepted.

Camping Info:
Jester Park features 257 campsites spread across wooded hills and along the shore of Saylorville Lake. These include 52 electric sites and 205 primitive sites. Campground showerhouses open mid-April. Camping rates are $16 for electric sites and $11 for non-electric. Campers should set up camp on their site before registering. Sites are taken on a first come first serve basis but the ranger tells us there should be no problem getting sites at that time of year. Here is a map showing the campgrounds, shelter and lodge.
