By ParksByNature Network
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Download the Official Florida State Parks Pocket Ranger® app to enhance any of your state park visits!
This FREE all-inclusive outdoor guide was created in a collaborative effort between Florida State Parks and ParksByNature Network™.
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.
Highlighted features include:
•Sleek user interface (UI) -- more photo-centric home screen design.
•Photo galleries on each park description page.
•A search feature to optimize search capabilities, allowing various ways to search by locations, activities, category, and site name. Making it easier to find the perfect recreational destination.
The app also 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 features that tracks friends and family around the parks.
•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 Florida State Parks & Forests!
•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.
What's New in Version 6.7.0
Performance enhancements and bug fixes!
Great concept but buggy execution.
App appears to have a lot of features, but it crashes a lot. Needs to be rebuilt and made more efficient. We love the parks and look forward to seeing this app get better and more helpful when deciding which of the many parks we want to visit!
My husband and I are working in Florida on a 2 year project and we love our annual Florida State Park pass, passport and the PocketRanger. We try and visit at least 3 or 4 parks on weekends we stay in state. The real Florida is beautiful.

Working great for us so far! Driving through the Panhandle in search of a place to enjoy our lunch. App took us straight to the closest state park after I selected the activities I was searching for.
