Download the Official Georgia 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 Georgia 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.

•Plus so much more!
With the Pocket Ranger® in hand, prepare to bask in the vast natural wonders of Georgia State Parks & Forests!

Ratings and Reviews
Crashes and difficult to use
First it crashes a lot. I mean a lot every second button I press it crashes. iOS 10.2 iPhone 6s
Second it very hard to use. Select near me and it shows nothing. It says select by activity or category. Okay selected still nothing. I finally have to search manually. Then it doesn't mark the place on the map. Directions don't work. And it goes on an on. Pathetic app
Great app for finding new places to explore!!
For those who love to camp and do outdoorsy things, this is a great app! Gives lots of details on all the parks, tells you how to get there and let's you know when there are specials! Love this app!!!
Great info for state parks
This app is great and has been needed for a long time. We use it often and is much better than a map and really helps with planning a trip around the state.
