Geocaching guide

Importing existing geocaches

Import your existing caches
 

If you already have geocaches listed on another site, you are welcome to list them here as well. They are your geocaches after all. We can even import the data from a gpx file so that you don’t have to type it again.

Just a few things to keep in mind.

First, you need to be the owner of the cache. If there is a great cache that you don't own, and you want to see it on OpenCaching.com, you will have to ask the cache owner to list it here.

Most geocache listing sites have similar guides, but you still will want to read our hiding regulations before importing your caches. In particular, our rules for virtual cache might be a little different.

Finally your cache will still go through the community review process. Take a second to double check your new cache page before submitting it. If your description uses a lot of html for formatting, you might have to touch things up. You should also consider adding any appropriate tags for your cache because most tags can't be added automatically in the import process.
