This official app is a portal for exploring the diverse lands and heritage sites managed by the U.S. Forest Service. A powerful exploration tool, this app allows you to discover forests near you and can help you explore each destination's points of interest. Use this app for easy access to forest facts, natural, cultural, and historic information, offline and GPS maps, recreational opportunities, and other essential visitor information to enjoy our National Forests and Grasslands.
The perfect companion for your next forest adventure or armchair travels, each app was developed by the forest unit’s rangers and interpretive staff and features a variety of content, including educational audio tours and natural and historic imagery. Plan your itinerary of things to see and do with easy access to information regarding recreational opportunities, trails, maps, and visitor centers.
Each forest destination can be downloaded individually from the portal, allowing you to stay up to date with your favorite destinations through push notifications alerts for closures and events. Connect with Visitor Centers and Ranger Stations using one-tap calling and submit valuable feedback or report concerns with surveys. OnCell has worked closely with each forest as the official provider of their mobile apps.
You can expect additional forests to be added to this app over time, as the U.S. Forest Service continues it's commitment to provide exciting and relevant visitor information in easy to access formats.
App updates and improvements.

Map View Locator
Nice to have a compact on-the-go guide to locating Nat’l Forest lands. Alphabetical or map view makes easy to find w/o draining battery with “location” usage in app. Only way to make better is if NPS & NF could partner up on ONE consolidated app to locate all lands to access with annual/senior pass.
Had potential to be great, but false advertising
I was really looking forward to using this app. The forest service has a great interactive map feature on their websites with trailhead, campground and other recreation information...I sort of thought this would be an improved, mobile version of that...the description promised off-line maps and trip planning options, I found none of that. The overall forest map is inaccurate and incomplete. When you do download a specific forest, the interface is super basic and pretty much offers nothing except a link to the NFS website for that area, which is then not mobile viewer friendly... not worth downloading
I downloaded this app hoping it would be similar to the excellent NPS app. It looks like after getting off to a good start in 2019, support for this app has stalled. Information for my local national forest (San Bernardino) is hopelessly out of date and does not match current information on the San Bernardino National Forest website (which appears to be current and correct). I am currently camping in a campground (Serrano) that this app says is “temporarily closed.” I sent feed back to the developer a few weeks ago and never heard back.
