  • A waste of $30

    By Suburban Boy2
    There is absolutely no redeeming feature of this app. The parks themselves provide better and more insight than this ripoff. They stole $30 from me, DO NOT let this happen to you! A complete waste of storage space.
  • Free trial

    Not free at all. Will not let you try it out unless you have either sufficient funds on apple store for full year or credit card on file with apple
  • Great app!

    By arflychic
    I’ve been using this app for many years and find it incredibly useful! There are a few little things that have been identified in other reviews, so I’m not going to repeat them. This app is well worth having and using if you frequent the National Parks - especially if you hike into the parks, beyond the parking lots and congestion. I spend a lot of time on remote trails, and some not so remote. There have been several times this app helped me find my way back after a long day on a confusing trail system. I always carry a paper map (as a backup), but there’s nothing like being able to view your location on a downloaded map of the trail system! Btw, I even carry a small solar panel to charge my phone. As with most apps, you MUST use it and familiarize yourself with it to fully benefit from its many features.
  • Dollar sign markers

    By Weather Argonaut
    It would be nice if there was a way to toggle on and off the dollar sign markers that offer discounts to nearby parks. They cover up the actual park markers and make it hard to see what I’ve visited. Example: I went to Acadia and marked that as visited, which turned the marker orange, but I can’t see it on the map unless I zoom way in. It is covered by all kinds of dollar sign markers when zoomed out.
  • Won’t Regret It

    By Appuhlz
    This app is great for planning national park trips! I’ve used it on my last five and it always gives great tips and ideas. Download it!
  • Requires subscription

    By DontShootTheMessenger
    I would pay a small fee but I don’t want the hassle of. Setting up a subscription and canceling etc. just make it an in app purchase and be done with it
  • very useful app

  • Problem downloading Park guides to iPad

    By azsuzie
    The app work fine on my android phone, but I am unable to download Park guides on the iPad app.
  • Locked me out of my data

    By Malt Miller
    This used to be a free 5 star app. Then they changed their model to a rather expensive pay-for basis. In the meantime I have loaded years of info covering some 37 National Parks and I am now locked out of that data because they now insist I pay a fee to look at MY DATA! I’m pretty angry. Not because they need to charge money for what is a pretty good app but they didn't give me chance to get my data or give me free access to the parks I’d already been to (and provided them info on). My data made this app better but I’m locked out of it. So when did I go to the Talus Cave at Pinnacles NP, or hike Wheeler Peak at Great Basin?
  • Crap app

    By ash123n
    This app is not user friendly. I paid for the year and I can’t figure out the trip planning. I downloaded the minimal map and the other one that was supposed to be more detailed, they were the same. This app is a waste of money.
