The North Carolina State Parks Guide by Pocket Ranger puts a wealth of state park information at your fingertips.
This free app consolidates and organizes all the information you might find on the state parks website – and more. While we've found it to be a little clunky at times, I do recommend the app for several useful features.
- A park overview
- Photo gallery
- Park alerts
- Operational times
- Contact information
- Trail descriptions
- Park map
- Educational opportunities and events
- Park history
- An ecological overview
Other features of the app include:
A camping button that lists all overnight stay options by category (drive-to camping, trailer/RV, backpack sites, family cabins, etc.) Each category lists the parks and their specific amenities.
A "follow" function that allows you and your friends to track each other's map location.
A weather function and built-in compass.
And, an alert feature that supplies GPS coordinates to designated contacts in case of an emergency.
