Join us Saturday, March 23 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. for a geocache treasure hunt around Camp Floyd State Park and Museum.
Participants are encouraged to bring their own GPS units, however Magellan will offer GPS units on loan. Participants will be given coordinates to the first cache and each subsequent cache will provide clues to the next site. Visitors who complete the treasure hunt earn a special prize.
The geocache treasure hunt is included with paid museum admission of $2 per person or $6 per family. Hamburgers, chips, hot dogs, and drinks will be available for purchase between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. with proceeds supporting the programs and activities of Utah State Parks.
Camp Floyd was established in 1858 to quell a Mormon rebellion, which never took place. Soldiers were stationed here until they were recalled to the Civil War in 1861. Today, the park and museum tell the story of this historic event.
Camp Floyd State Park is located in the town of Fairfield, 22 miles southwest of Lehi on Highway 73. The park and museum are open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5p.m. For more information, visit stateparks.utah.gov or call 801-768-8932.
