Re: State & Federal Park Android Apps

I use "Oh Ranger" too.

We also use AllStays which costs about $10.

Another is "UC Public ". I can't remember if I paid for that. If so, not more than $10.

An app called PeakFinderEarth is handy. It show a profile skyline from your exact location with the peaks named. I think that's also a pay app.

GoogleMaps and GoogleEarth are handy.

GasBuddy shows what most gas stations in an area are selling for. Not too important if you're out where Sportsmobiles belong because there's only one station for 50 miles.

If you like to watch the sky when you camp, try SimpleMoonPhaseWidget, ISS Detector, and for sure get GoogleSkyMap.

GPS Essentials is a great interface to your phones GPS. It gives you about everything you would get out of a hand held unit.

Re: State & Federal Park Android Apps

You can also go to the website for whichever state you happen to be in...for instance...

http://www.parks.wa.gov/


And if you have your Delorme Gazetteer for the state you happen to be in, you'll have a listing of a LOT Of parks...

Re: State & Federal Park Android Apps

The "UC" is the Ultimate Public Campground app by Mr. Modesitt. It's tremendous, and now works on Android. It has an offline index of all public campgrounds, with facilities, costs, phone numbers, elevation (important when you're avoiding/seeking heat), etc. And even more with a data connection.

I also find PDF Maps by Avenza excellent; simple, and it has many free maps. Lots of the US Forest Service visitor maps are available for low cost, and it's WAY easier to use than unfolding the paper maps, which are small tarps. And it has free topo and National Park visitor maps.
