Geocaching Regulations

Since April 30, 2009, MDC has permitted geocachers and letterboxers who acquire a Special Use Permit to place caches and letterboxes on many conservation areas. To get a Special Use Permit, search our online Conservation Atlas (check the MDC Atlas under MDC Applications below) to find the area you wish to use, and call the phone number listed for that area. You do not need to have a Special Use Permit to search for caches on conservation areas, only to place them. Thanks for using and enjoying your Missouri Department of Conservation areas!
