The Official Guide for Utah State Parks & Recreation Pocket Ranger® app has gotten a total makeover!
This FREE all-inclusive outdoor guide was created in a collaborative effort between Utah State Parks and 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.
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.
•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.
•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 Utah 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.

Other performance and bug fixes
Works well for me. I like the maps and gives all the information you need. My favorites are reservation information, detailed weather report, and a "App Guide". Couldn't ask for more for free.
The App you should have in Utah
The app is recommended by my friend before I traveled to Utah. He said I would thank him after my trip. He is right. It is a really cool app. The map, the guide help me enjoy the beauty of Utah state parks.
Very cool app. This was a great idea. Love that I could find info so easily.
