While the app launches, runs, and does display parks on the map, the UI seems to use white text on a white background making it impossible to read. Parks don't have any information beyond the name and I haven't seen any way to update parks beyond user submitted photos, so no there is no text information, description, or schedule available.

Useless- 1st version of this app constantly stopped and closed. It also was missing a ton of parks (they would be on the map and can see the name, but you couldn't add them from the Everglades NPS to several state parks nationwide). Now, I downloaded the update after an email from NPS. ALL MY PREVIOUS BADGES AND STAMPS ARE GONE!! And while some like the Everglades are added, other parks are still not. Nothing for parks on it like maps, website links, brochure info, etc. What is it for then?

I tried it. When I put in my city, it showed pins with a number in each (no explanation of what the number meant). When I clicked on a pin, it zoomed in and the pin disappeared; there was no park that corresponded with the pin. I did see a few local parks (city or county) that were labelled on the map. When I clicked on one, there was only the name of the park and the distance from me. No info about the park at all. As it is now, the app is useless to me. I deleted it.
