This App is easy to navigate through, it gives me access to much info I need to plan a very good weekend while seating on the train. No excuses not to get active. Download the app, program yourself during the week and get up Sat morning ready to have fun: an enormous variety of activities, calendar of events available, I can plan kayaking, fishing, camping, biking, or simply lie down on the lawn and read. You can do different activities in a different Park every weekend if you want. Thank you Rangers, I L-O-V-E this app!
Great app. I use it a lot. I load other states when I visit them and I have every thing I need right there
Site descriptions are outdated, addresses are incorrect (Blackwells Mills Canal House is at 598 Canal Rd, not 625 & the wooden bridge was replaced years ago). There's no consistency in how information is presented nor cross referencing. Intrusive advertising, some of it full screen popups you have to dismiss to continue navigating. With fine-tuning it could be an informative & useful app.
