Nevada State Parks launches new mobile app
The Nevada Division of State Parks is excited to announce the launch of a new app that will make it easier than ever for visitors to connect with nature and access information about parks and trails from their mobile devices. Powered by OuterSpatial, the mobile app is free and enhances access to the entire Nevada State Park system with real-time updates about on-the-ground conditions, including wayfinding tools, interactive maps, park guidelines, visitor photos, points of interest, events, a digital passport challenge and more.

- Plan a visit to a park and make the most of a visit once there.
- Get biking, walking, and driving directions to Nevada State Parks and trails.
- Navigate safely while on trails using the gps powered app. No cell phone signal needed once app is installed.
- Locate parking, restrooms, picnic areas and other park amenities.
- Access information about natural, cultural, and historic points of interest.
- Share experiences and photos and connect with others who love the outdoors.
- Discover nearby public lands adjacent to Nevada State Parks.

As a reminder, it is best to be aware of the terrain and conditions prior to visiting. A map, compass, GPS-enabled device, or phone with plenty of battery life and previously loaded with apps and maps, and plenty of drinking water, are essential to exploring the remote parts of Nevada.
The Nevada Division of State Parks plans, develops and maintains a system of parks and recreation areas for the use and enjoyment of millions of visitors a year. The division was established in 1963 by the Nevada Legislature to form a new state park agency within the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. The division manages and maintains 27 parks, historic sites and recreation areas in Nevada.
