We are your year-round destination, including skiing on one of the 122 ski areas in the winter, photographing the bursting colors of wildflowers, cooking s’mores around the campfire in the summer or watching leaves change colors in the fall.

This app use too work but now I get a "Map Service Error" when I start the app. I uninstalled it, did a power off restart and reinstall and get the same error. It will install the basemap but that is only good to get you to the state level. I cannot down load other forest maps. I get a dialog box but cannot type in any text to search. I gave it two stars because it use to work pretty good. It does not work at all now. Wort a try if it works for you.

Large and often difficult to find what I'm looking for, but when I get there, it does provide a lot of useful info: motor vehicle use maps - MVUs - old logging roads, for the most part; campgrounds; areas where primitive camping is allowed - which they call Dispersed camping; picnic areas, etc. Because it's such a huge file, I usually uninstall it after I've found what I need, and reinstall it when I need it again.

I have to say that the app while giving us general locations it does not allow me to open up the spots that I click on like the web page does. There doesn't appear to be gps to the area which would really be helpful. One of the most frustrating is the app freezes up and pops me out of it entirely. I hope they come up to a 3.0 to take care of these issues as I see it as a primary app in my travels. UPDATE: I have the 1.2.2 version
