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.

I really appreciate having our National Parks to enjoy and the beauty of them .I have been fortunate enough to visit quite a few of them in my life . Thanks for this opportunity Hobblehorse
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
Many missing forests
If you’re looking for a comprehensive list of USFS forests, this is not it. Many are not to be found at all. When you do find one you must download a large data file for that particular forest. The information is then comprehensive, but downloading such data in remote locations is not usually available. So you must do all of your planning and investigation before leaving home or when in a good WiFi environment.
