Delaware State Parks are pleased to announce a free mobile application available for download for the Apple iPhone and Android smartphones. Created in alliance with ParksByNature Network of New York, the Pocket Ranger™ Mobile Tour Guide provides guests with detailed park information for an amazing venture into any of Delaware’s State Parks.

Users may download the free Lite version and find a state park by location or activity.

They may search the trails menu in the park page for a description of available trails that pass through a variety of terrains. The app allows visitors to make camping reservations and access useful information on weather conditions, operational times and calendar events. Users can also download campground maps in advance to use even when cell phone service is unavailable.

The Pro version of the app includes features to record trails and mark waypoints. Users will enjoy the convenience of the Friend Finder, which allows visitors to know where family and friends are within the park. Another major feature of the app is the Alert, which notifies select contacts in the event of an emergency.  

When visitors upgrade to the Pro version of the app, a significant contribution will go towards Delaware’s treasured state parks. All nature lovers are encouraged to download the Official Guide for Delaware State Parks and start exploring today!

The Pocket Ranger™ Mobile Tour Guide can be downloaded from a link on the Delaware State Parks website at www.destateparks.com or directly from the iTunes Store, and it will soon be available at Android’s Market. Users may also visit StateParkApps.com for more information.
