Welcome to the IGO!

Welcome Guest!

You are more than welcome to have a look around the internet home of the Iowa Geocachers Organization.  Many of the features of this web site (and of the IGO) are restricted to members only.  But membership is FREE and we'd love to count you among our many members.

We have been receiving lots of bogus registration attempts lately, so if you would like to register for an account here please use the link provided here to send an e-mail to registration@iowageocachers.org.

Important!  The body of your e-mail MUST contain a brief statement indicating what your interest in the IGO is AND the username you wish to register under.  Are you a geocacher?  An Iowan just getting started in geocaching or wondering just what this geo-thing is?  Please let us know.  Failure to include this information may invalidate your registration attempt.  Your registration will be tied to the e-mail address used to send this message.  Confirmation of registration could take up to a week so please be patient.  Thank you.

Our Mission: To support and promote geocaching in and around Iowa through the education of geocachers, public officials, and the general public; to encourage safe, legal, and ethical geocaching practices; and to encourage and support an open, helpful, and fun geocaching community.

Hike n Seek 2014 is coming SOON!!

Published in

GEOBoji Cache Fishin' --- IGO's (Iowa Geocachers Organization) eleventh annual Hike and Seek will be held on September 12-14, 2014, in the Iowa Great Lakes (Okoboji) area. 

This will be a great time to geocache around Okoboji since the busy summer season will be over. After Labor Day campgrounds are not as packed and motel rates are less than that during the peak summer season.

There will be 100 new caches in addition to the 200 existing official geocaching.com caches of various types and sizes within 10 miles of HnS 2014 headquarters on Emerson Bay of West Lake Okoboji.

Event caches will include a potluck Friday evening, catered dinner Saturday evening, and a pancake breakfast on Sunday morning. Sidebar events include a TB/Pathtag Trader, Best-Dressed Cache Mobile, a couple of Flash Mobs, Museum visits and a CITO.  We are also planning 'early in' and 'late out' meet-and-greet events for the weekend.  Also, there will be kid-friendly organized activities.

Visit hns2014.webs.com for detailed information.
