REI - National Parks Guide & Maps

Age Level: All Ages
By Developer: REI

If you are planning on visiting some of the U.S. National Parks, this app is a great little tool to carry along with you. Per the App Store review, currently the app covers: Arches UT, Grand Canyon AZ, Grand Teton WY, Mount Rainier WA, Point Reyes CA, Rocky Mountain CO, Zion UT, Yellowstone WY, Yosemite CA, Shenandoah, Muir Woods CA, Hot Springs AZ, and Haleakala National Parks, with more parks to be added in the near future. This is according to the Apple review. When I opened up the app, I found over 20 more – from the East to the West Coast.

Not only does the app provide information on the parks, such as an overview of what the park highlights, it's hours, seasons and cost, lodging, shops, shuttles & tours, trails, and more, you can find yourself at the exact point you are at on a given trail – with no cell service needed! Boy, I would have loved to have this information in the past, especially with kids in tow.

Want more specifics on such things as trails? There are links to this as well as other information.

I have been to many of these National Parks and would have loved to have had this little app! We will definitely be putting this app into use for our family adventures.

Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
