GA State Parks Outdoors Guide


The Official Guide for Georgia State Parks & Historic Sites Pocket Ranger® app has gotten a total makeover!

This FREE all-inclusive outdoor guide was created in a collaborative effort between the Georgia Department of Natural Resources and ParksByNature Network®, and the next generation of the app is better than ever.

Powered by Pocket Ranger® technology, the app gives outdoor enthusiasts an environmentally friendly way to enjoy the parks. It contains everything you need to plan a trip to the state parks, navigate them once you get there, and share your experiences afterward.

Newly added features:
•New user interface (UI) with a sleek, more photo-centric home screen design.
•Photo galleries on each park description page.
•A new Explore feature to optimize search capabilities, allowing a 4-in-1 search by location, activities, category, and site name, making it easier to find the perfect recreational destination.

The app still has rich GPS features, such as:

•Advanced GPS Maps, complete with an accuracy and distance indicator, which allow you to access trail data, record tracks from hikes, runs, or bike rides, and view elapsed time and distance traveled.
•Easy-to-cache GPS Terrain Map tiles, which ensure that navigation remains possible in the event of lost mobile reception.
•Photo waypoint feature allowing you to snap a photo and mark and record the coordinates of plant life, animal species or landscape views. Post or share these remarkable finds with family and friends with the click of a button.
•Friend Finder feature that tracks friends and family around the parks.
•Built-in compass.
•Potentially life-saving Alert feature that supplies GPS coordinates to designated contacts in case of an emergency.

Other standard features make exploring the great outdoors a breeze:

•Thorough information on all state parks including general policy, contact information, activities, trails, park maps and much more.
•Detailed, cacheable maps of park facilities, trails and campgrounds.
•Up-to-date news, park advisories and weather information.
•Sharing features for sharing current positions, waypoints and recorded tracks via Facebook, Twitter, or email.
•A real-time Calendar of Events.
•Access to online reservations that make it easy to secure overnight visits.
•Plus so much more!

With the Pocket Ranger® in hand, prepare to bask in the vast natural wonders of Georgia State Parks & Historic Sites State Parks!

•The enhanced pro features on the app are designed to function in areas with little to no mobile reception; however, some of the features require mobile data reception in order to function properly.
•Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Not intuitive, crashes The Explore feature has a bunch of cryptic icons for searching parks near me and the legend won't load or crashes. The activity icons in this section seem to be different than the more logical ones throughout the rest of the app. The Explore by Activity feature generates a lost of parks by activity, but is not available in a map view so I can't tell what's near me. So close to being a useful, but completely unusable as is. I even tried on iOS and had all the same issues so it's not just an Android problem.

Does not meet expectations I was very disappointed with this app. I downloaded it while staying at High Falls State Park. I wanted to use it to become familiar with the park and the activities. However, I found the ads and poor user interface to be a huge distraction. Also, I wished the app has an offline map function and the ability to see the park details better. After trying to use the app to get the info I was looking for I ended up uninstalling it and just visited the official mobile website for GA State Parks instead.

Stop ads What's with the constant barrage of banners and popups? Every time I click something I gotta see another Cabela's ad? Paid version please! Other than that, does what I want.
