Attention all park goers, nature lovers, and outdoor enthusiasts: there will soon be a FREE smartphone app for you!
ParksByNature Network™ in partnership with Alabama State Parks is proud to announce the upcoming launch of the Alabama State Parks Pocket Ranger® Smartphone App for iPhone and Android.
This FREE on-the-go interactive guide will give users access to Alabama’s 22 state parks with detailed information on campgrounds, amenities, facility maps, directions and more. Plan that perfect outdoor trip by searching for a park by GPS location or activity to find nearby locations to enjoy hiking, camping, boating, birding, and more. Once you’re there, advanced GPS and GIS mapping technology will allow you to track and record trails, mark waypoints, and locate your friends within the parks. You can even cache GPS maps in advance to ensure that navigation remains possible in the event of lost mobile reception.
The app provides plenty of other features to maximize your outdoor adventure:
