New Jersey’s State Parks? There’s an APP for That

DEP Commissioner Bob Martin
Ilya Hemlin, Townsquare Media NJ

Today, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) launched a new mobile phone application to help visitors plan for and make the most out of their trips to New Jersey’s state parks, forests and historic sites. The free Pocket Ranger application provides information on activities, amenities and services directly to users’ smartphones.

The version of the application compatible with Apple iPhones was launched today. The Android- compatible version will be launched in several days. The applications can be downloaded at

DEP commissioner Bob Martin says, “We are very proud to offer this new service to the public. New Jersey’s park system is second to none and has been experiencing record numbers of visitors in recent years. This application gets us in step with the times, making it  much easier for people to plan their visits to our wonderful parks, forests and historic sites and  make decisions about what to see and do once they get there.”
