The US Corps of Engineers owns the land around both Falls and Jordan Lakes; however, in most places the land is leased by the State of North Carolina and the Wildlife Resource Commission, which have their own geocaching policies.
However, the areas near the dam at both lakes is land managed by the US Corps of Engineers. For any future caches placed on USCOE land, USCOE have requested they are contacted and given the ability to review the cache location for approval on receipt of a free permit application developed with us. They want to ensure that caches are not placed in any restricted areas such as the dam, the emergency spillway, etc. All existing caches will be given permits.
Geocachers who have questions, or as directed by the NC Volunteer Reviewers, or want to place a cache on USCOE managed land can contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The USCOE is excited to support Geocaching around Falls and Jordan Lakes and have also begun to place some caches at Falls Lake to enhance their recreation program around the dam. NCGO will provide informational leaflets for the Visitor centers.
