Mission Statement:

The Georgia Geocachers Association (GGA), the oldest Geocaching club in the world, is a group of people whose purpose is to encourage, publicize and support Geocaching in the state of Georgia. We meet monthly to share stories and to develop the sport within Georgia.  We have a state-wide scope, supporting both individual cachers and regional clubs.

Upcoming Events:

GGA August: High Deals! (Summer Poker Run)

Come join the GGA  for a geo-poker run in the cool northeast Georgia mountains!    Our August event is at Black Rock Mountain State Park! 

We will base at Picnic Shelter #1, near the Visitor Center (and an Earthcache!).


Intro to Geocaching Puzzles - July 2018

Do Geocaching puzzles bother you? Do you open a puzzle cache page and quickly close it? Do those ciphers, numbers, and pictures just look like gibberish? 

Then this might be the event for you!

We want to assist others in solving some of those darn puzzles that show up as question marks on your screen when they should be turning into smileys.

(For more information about this event, please refer to the geocaching.com cache-page.)

GGA September - Hydropalooza 2018

The GGA would like to invite you to the new "Hydropalooza" in a new location...Fort McAllister State Park in Richmond Hill, GA!

The event will run from 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm at Pavillion #1 very close to the main office and museum.
