NC State Parks Guide


Pocket Ranger®'s North Carolina State Parks Guide app has gotten a total makeover!

This FREE all-inclusive outdoor guide was created in a collaborative effort between the North Carolina Division of Parks & Recreation 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 North Carolina 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.

Too much advertising It can be challenging to click on a park without accidentally clicking on a Chevrolet dealer or days inn hotel link when you're not dodging pop ups.

Scam I paid for this app a while back and recently upgraded phones....now it is free? I want my dang money back.....total scam! (Update) Still a banner ad spamming machine. Uninstalling for good. Total waste of my money and time.

Needs a regional map of parks! App would be Ok, except you have GUESS if the park is near the area you want to explore. You can narrow it down to region s, but then it's just a list of parks in that region, instead of seeing a map of the region with park locations. The region is hundreds of miles, so that's really not helpful in locating a park in the areas without looking at all the parks in that region.
