Wonocolo Village is a village in Bojonegoro Regency with geology-based tourism potentials under development, i.e., Geopark Wonocolo, or commonly known as Teksas Wonocolo based on Bojonegoro Tourism Development Master Plan 2019-2034. Besides, this village has pokdarwis (tourism conscious group) as the tourism developer and manager in Wonocolo Village. However, under its development, several problems still exist. One of which is the constant local community participation condition because most of the community has not seen the potential. Also, the offered attractions are monotonous, e.g., it only has a tour guide and education activities in the Geopark museum. This study aimed to identify community participation forms and levels in Wonocolo Village concerning geotourism development. In determining community participation forms and levels, the qualitative descriptive analysis technique was used by involving stakeholders, which has been predetermined as respondents that consisted of governments, private sector, public sector, and the community. Based on the study results, community participation forms and levels were discovered.
