The Official New Jersey Parks & Forests guide is FREE to download and will enhance any of your park or forest experiences!

Outdoor enthusiasts can now experience nature like never before with this official mobile guide powered by Pocket Ranger® technology. This all-inclusive app offers an environmentally friendly way to explore, camp, hike or bike. Users can decide which park or forest to visit using a comprehensive list of activities or search for nearby locations within a particular region. Advanced GPS and GIS Mapping technology invites users to track trails, mark waypoints, and locate landmarks in the great outdoors, while interactive features guide users and keep them informed.

Users can access rich GPS features, such as:

•Advanced GPS Maps with State GIS (Geographic Information Systems), which allow users 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 users 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 allows users to keep track of friends and family along the way.
•Built-in compass to help users navigate.
•Potentially life-saving Alert feature that supplies users’ GPS coordinates to designated contacts in case of an emergency.

Pocket Ranger® technology also provides plenty of other standard features that make exploring the great outdoors a breeze, including:

•Thorough information on the facilities including general policy, contact information, activities, trails, park maps and much more.
•Detailed, cacheable maps of facilities, trails and campgrounds.
•Up-to-date news and information on state park advisories and weather information.
•Sharing features that allow users to share current positions, waypoints and recorded tracks via Facebook, Twitter, or email.
•A Calendar of Events, updated in real time, listing events with the ability to filter by desired location. Users can also create their own schedule.
•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 that New Jersey has to offer!

•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.
•Obviously, if you choose to call, text or email through the application, you understand that you are responsible to your service provider for any charges that may apply to communications sent from your device. POCKET RANGER DOES NOT HAVE ACCESS TO OR CONTROL OF THESE COMMUNICATIONS.
•Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

    The map tools are novel, and the Google map caching capability is a good idea for places where there's no internet. Unfortunately, there are no additional features in those maps (that I could make appear) other than the Appalachian Trail. Shorter camp sid
