This app is pretty much pointless. It has none of the functionality I expected. There is no integration with the reservation system, no park/trail maps, no event calendar. It does have some functionality that nobody needs though, like packing lists! Very disappointing. I wish I could give it 0 stars.

does not work at all on my Samsung tablet. Crashes as soon as I try to look at any trail map. pure garbage. Uninstalled 5 minutes after install. Don't waste your time with this one. However it works well enough on my phone Sony Xperia. Trail data is ok tho not perfect, but app is clunky. Needs more work to be user friendly.

Sorry for the inconvenience. We have informed our developers of this issue and will work to resolve it as soon as possible.

i hate to think this was paid for by tax dollars that where diverted from the parks where it is needed more. Half of the functionality of this app is missing.. Maybe next summer the summer students can finish this hot mess. All of the camping tutorials are blank pages. This app is shamelessly just a marketing ploy to steal the copy right of your photos and other data. I was expecting an app that tied into the booking system and gave me a list of my reservations. This app does not do that.

The content of the dynamic pages should download when the app is connected to wifi or mobile. Our reservation system is not yet integrated in the app but the app will link you to the mobile web version. We collect no personal information from the app, your photos are on your phone only and are shared through your own social media apps and accounts.
