Ratings and Reviews
I have no idea why it has such a low star rating. This app has helped me plan and travel to over 40 State Parks. It is hands down one of the best designed and functional apps I have used. I am sad that this company hasn’t done apps for other states.
- It shows you were the parks are on the map.
- It gives you plenty of info on cost and park restrictions (access and availability)
- You can view and download maps (helps to already plan out what hikes you may go on)
- IT’S FREE!
I found this app to be helpful. One of the best features is the ability to apply filters to find parks that have specific features you want, like biking, fishing, etc. The filters are quite specific, so fishing has filters for “cleaning stations”, loaner tackle”, “boat ramps”, etc.
So why did I give this 4 stars? It still needs to be polished a bit. And the advertisements are a bummer, but I am sure it helps pay for app development.
Well Done TP&W!
Beautiful and intuitive app for exploring Texas State parks. Includes filters for finding just the right park for whatever your needs. Maps, fees and pretty much anything you might want to know about a park is there. Not sure what those other reviewers are complaining about as it looks like all the parks are listed and you can make reservations as well.
