The NPS App

One app, every park at your fingertips. The NPS App is the new official app for the National Park Service with tools to explore more than 400 national parks nationwide. Find interactive maps, tours of park places, on-the-ground accessibility information, and much more to plan your national park adventures before and during your trip.

The NPS App is currently available for iOS- and Android-powered devices. It can be downloaded for free through the App Store and Google Play.

 

Features

The NPS App was created by National Park Service staff—people who know national parks—to help you make the most of your visit. The NPS App takes authoritative information from park rangers and combines it with a great suite of features. Here’s a quick look at some of those features.

  • Interactive Maps: Each park has a detailed map that includes points of interest, along with roads, trails, and other information to plan your trip.
  • Amenities: It's the little—and sometimes not so little—things that can make or break a park visit. Learn where you can find and access transportation, food, restrooms, shopping, and more.
  • Accessibility: The app offers a fully accessible experience with tools to benefit visitors with accessibility needs, such as audio descriptions of exhibits along trails and roads and in visitor centers.
  • Offline Use: No internet access? No problem! You can download content from entire parks for offline use. It’s especially handy if you’re exploring remote areas in parks or concerned about data limits.
  • News, Alerts & Events: What’s happening? Get news and events for all parks—or selected parks of your choosing.
  • It's Free, No Ads!: This app was funded in part by your national park entrance and recreation fees. Thank you for supporting the national parks and other public lands.
 

What's Next

We’re just getting started. If you don’t find what you are looking for now, check back regularly as our rangers continue to add more ways for you to experience each of our parks through the NPS app. The National Park Service is also planning to expand features, so stay tuned for more!
