Geocaching Guidelines

Idaho Power offers geocaching opportunities on Idaho Power lands to provide interesting facts and educational opportunities related to hydropower, history, geology and the natural environment.

In order to meet Groundspeak Inc. requirements and maintain community standards related to cache siting, Idaho Power has established the following guidelines for private geocaching on Idaho Power-owned lands:

  • No private geocache may be sited on Idaho Power-owned property without prior authorization from Idaho Power. Contact prior to installing or placing a geocache. Please note that will not authorize new geocaches on private lands without proof of landowner consent.
  • The Fundamental Placement Guidelines provided by Groundspeak Inc. and all local laws and documented land management policies also govern the physical location of any geocache placed with permission on Idaho Power lands. Prior to placing and submitting geocaches, please read the guidelines and the Regional Geocaching Policies Wiki provided at
