The National Park Service launched a new mobile app for all of its 423 parks titled National Park Service. In the past, travelers had to download apps for each park, so this is a one-stop shop.

It’s available for free on Android and iOS and has a ton of features, like accessibility information, alerts, audio tours, hike suggestions, lodging reservations, news, restaurant hours, join a ranger program, become a junior ranger, and maps that are available to download for offline use.

Outside Magazine writes, “Want to go on a guided audio tour of the Star Wars filming locations within Death Valley? Download park data for offline use, begin at the Furnace Creek Visitor Center, on the California side of the park, and follow the driving directions on the app’s map to blast off to Tatooine. Looking for the best spot to check out the active eruption on Kilauea? Flip through the recommended options and learn about the goddess Pele and Hawaii Volcanoes history as you decide where to take in the show. It’s like having a ranger in your pocket at all times.”
