Outdoors Guide Goes Smart

Cloudland Canyon State Park's Waterfall in Spring

If you're an avid outdoor enthusiast, you can enjoy even easier access to state parks with the Georgia Outdoors Guide, a free smartphone application available in the iTunes App Store and for the Android market.

Even in the absence of an Internet connection, the app works well, and it is packed with powerful, and potentially life saving, features. It allows you to:

  • locate nearby state parks
  • keep track of friends and family while on a hiking trail
  • notify chosen contacts about your location
  • personalize park maps by adding custom landmarks and waypoints, such as your favorite campgrounds, fishing or hunting spots, trails heads and scenic views

For more information, visit Pocket RangerTM and watch short video tutorials that explain the app's features.
