Geocaching is a treasure hunting game where a geocacher can place a geocache (container) somewhere in the world, pinpoint its location using GPS technology then share the geocache’s existence and location with others online. Get registered at and prepare your treasure hunting skills for the Crystal Lake 100-Years Geocoin Challenge. The 100-Years Geocoin Challenge will take you through the City where you will discover twelve hidden caches and explore some of Crystal Lake’s history along the way.
