Curious about the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore and more than 400 other national parks? The National Park Service just launched an app that includes an interactive map and current information about the park we love.
The app is called “National Park Service.” You can find it in iOS and Android app stores.
According to the app description, ” The app was created by National Park Service staff—people who know national parks—to help you make the most of your visit. With all of these parks and a brand new app, it will take some time to finish creating content for each park. If you don’t find what you’re looking for now, check back regularly as our rangers work to complete the experience for each of our parks.”
App features include interactive maps plus information about park tours, amenities and accessibility. You can also sign up for news and alerts for the park or parks of your choosing. Much of the content mirrors what’s on the National Park Service website.
One especially useful feature is the ability to download content for offline use. This can be important in and around the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore where cell phone coverage varies from none to good depending on your location and carrier.
