Welcome!!!!


You have reached the homepage of the Michigan Geocaching Organization (MiGO). The purpose of our organization is to promote the sport of Geocaching in Michigan via improved communications and to provide information to the public about our activities and the sport of geocaching. Please spend some time on our site. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us or visit www.geocaching.com for more details.

Join MiGO Today! Membership gives you many benefits. MiGO is one of the oldest and most respected Geocaching organizations in the country. Since our inception in April, 2002 we have grown both in size and stature. In 2007 we were granted an organizational land use permit by the Michigan DNR. This permit is paid annually by MiGO and enables all our members to place caches on permitted DNR lands, with the appropriate permit where required, at no fee. This is just one of the many benefits of your membership. You'll also become part of a local and tight-knit Geocaching community with an active interest in caching in our state. Our forums are very active and are a great place to meet cachers and learn.

Camp MiGO


Are you ready for the First Annual MiGO Summer Camping Weekend? 

We hope to be starting a new tradition in the shadows of an old one. In keeping with the former Haunted Hollow event that took place here over the last ten years, each year will have a theme. We begin this new tradition in the year that Michigan State Parks is celebrating its Centennial by thanking the many people who helped make our camping experiences possible, comfortable and enjoyable. Come join us for a weekend of geocaching fun and adventure, as we remember an amazing group of campers from the 1930s and 40s, the...

Challenge of the Month


MiGO wants to get you more involved in Geocaching and in MiGO.  To that end, in early 2018. we created the Challenge of the Month.  Challenges will be different for each month of the year.  Each month's challenge will be different from the others.  
The Challenge of the Month season runs from February to January of the next year,  culminating at the Winter Social.  Each challenge begins on the first day of the month and runs through the last day of the month.  Caches must be found and logged during the monthly challenge period.

We want every member to be able to participage, so every challenge will have a minimum of three and sometimes four levels:

Bronze Level: Pretty much everyone should be able to do these, though some may have you step out of your comfort zone a little!
Silver Level: These will be a bit tougher – it’s a way to push yourself as a cacher!  Can you complete the Silver Level Challenge?
Gold Level:  These are for the most dedicated and hardcore cachers out there!  Challenge yourself to the max and see if you can complete these very tough challenges!
Platinum Level:  These awill really challenge the  most dedicated and hardcore cachers out there!  


Go to the Forums on the Membership page to learn more and to participate.

MiGO Store

The latest addition to the MiGO store is the 2019 Michigan Geocaching Calendar.  Every year this calendar is a hot item and sells out quickly.  Don't miss out on your chance to get one. 

The funding to support our organization is derived through member contributions via donations, purchases in our store, and supporting memberships. We appreciate your interest in our organization and our store and invite you to look around. If you have any questions, you can email us at store@mi-geocaching.org


MiGO Store


Our store is still "under construction"  check back often as we build this feature of the website. We are working on bring new and exciting products to the store.

We are looking at new items to put in the store and are always interested in your feedback.  Is there something you think that the store should have for sale?  Please let us know.


MiGO and You


This is the home of the Michigan Geocaching Organization or MiGO. Geocaching is closing in on 20 years of existence and MiGO has been a part of most of that. Our goal is to promote the activity of geocaching by helping geocachers and those looking to get into geocaching. What can we do to help you? Take a look around and let us know what you think. Feel free to share your thoughts and suggestions. Happy caching!

MiGO Member

BIG things are going on at MiGO, and I just wanted to take a minute to let you know what some of them are:

Last May we started the "MiGO Challenge of the Month".  The "Second Season" kicked off March 1st.  Participation is really picking up.  We'd like everyone to have the chance at coveted prizes awarded to some lucky member each month.  Check out the Forum page on the mi-geocaching.org website for more information. 

August 2019

Come to Camp MiGO the weekend of August 17th.  Check out the panel on  the home page.

MSPC GeoTour
The Spring of 2019 put Michigan on the world geocaching map with our first official GeoTour!  MiGO and the Michigan Department of Resources continue working together on this GeoTour celebrating the 100th anniversary of Michigan's State Parks.

There are many more things to announce, but they're not quite ready yet.  The new Executive Committee is working hard to restore your faith in our organization.  We have new merchandise in the pipeline for the store.  We have unique and exclusive path tags for you to acquire, we will have a bigger presence at events around the state and be making donations in cash and in-kind for events of all types and sizes.  Let your RVP know if you have an event coming up that you would like MiGO to help with.


Membership Cost

The new site is paid for by the month per active membership. If you pay the $10 supporting membership you are paying for the cost for a year. If you sign up for a free membership MiGO pays the cost. On the old site we had over 7000 listed memberships. Why that many? The answer is people checking the site signed up for free membership and never come back. Signing up every three months weeds those inactive memberships out keeping our cost down.  Which is cheaper paying for 150 members or 7,000?

We  have made big strides in the number of supporting members, but we still have a long way to go to break even.  Are you willing to become Supporting Members!
