New York State Parks




    Pocket Ranger's New York State Parks Guide app is now available!

    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.

    Newly added features:
    •New user interface (UI) with a sleek, more photo-centric home screen design.
    •Photo galleries on each park description page.
    •A new Explore feature to optimize search capabilities, allowing a 4-in-1 search by location, activities, category, and site name, making it easier to find the perfect recreational destination.

    The app still 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 feature that tracks friends and family around the parks.
    •Built-in compass.
    •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.
    •Sharing features for sharing current positions, waypoints and recorded tracks via Facebook, Twitter, or email.
    •A real-time Calendar of Events.
    •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 of New York State Parks!

    •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.
    •Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

    I would give this app a zero if I could, all it did was take me to an events calendar. This app is clearly broken.

    Installed 3 times and every time it brings me to the calendar/events page with no way to get into the actual app. There's no menu bar to return to the main page. I've never seen the main page actually. Bummer. Hopefully they can fix this bug..
