    The info provided was good but way too limited. It could have used much more to be actually useful. What is with the camping equipment section?

    Thanks for this app Canada Parks. I like the list making feature. I would love to see you make an app with more information for back country and more experienced campers. I'd also love to see an app where I can check off which parks I've been to and make notes on my trips there.

    Good app but sadly it doesn't cover southern Ontario too well. No mention of Algonquin at all and I personally while like some more info on the Niagara region and GTA . Checklists are good and hopefully one day we'll get to try the further afield locations. Neil in St Catharines On.

    What good is the check list if it keeps re-setting to default!!! I've set up a list twice only to loose it all!! Pretty useless if you ask me.

    The idea is great. But it lacks informations and has fatal technical issues to the extend that it is useless. Thanks developer

    Some useful tips. Scrolling is a bit slow at times.

    Meal plan suggestions are limited, and the places available for camping are limited to camper access - what about tenting and hiking?
