Good intentions

You can see the intent, but the delivery of this app is horrible. I frequent the local state park every week, and do alot of camping through out the parks throughout the year. I research and make my reservations from my laptop because this app and the way TWPD has the reservation system set up are two different sites. They do not intertwine, and I don’t know which park I am looking at in the app because the map function is horrible in that it doesn’t load. Pins are present, no map....just blank. I am deleting it because it is just not useful. If I were on the go adventuring and had to rely on this app, I would be camping in a wal-mart parking lot. It is free though, so there is a plus in that.

Finding it helpful and informative

It fulfills the majority of its intention. It shows a nice listing of parks alphabetically, shows a map, images and videos of each and a wide array of other details such as phone, social media, amenities, etc. Haven't tried the reservation option because that is primarily something I would do over a desktop. If falls short of five stars due to what I believe to be a few uncut exceptions at the time in which data is being fetched or perhaps just long query times. In reality, this app should be an SPA capable of bulk loading all park details with the video/images being an exception. it would allow for the immediate rendering of the listing and no load time when drilling down into an individual park. All in all I’m enjoying using the app and it fulfills the purpose intended.

Incorrect information? Or poorly organized?

Whenever you use the search function it will provide results such as a cabin but when you click on the result it gives you the park doesn’t actually have the cabin (or the feature you are searching for). Similarly, it will give you results that says the park has availability but when you click on it and go into booking it will say there is no availability. I like the idea of this app and having all the information in one place! But they need to work on the actual functioning of the app, the search function, and helping to narrow down to correct information and results.

Also, allowing to eliminate results that don’t allow dogs, or only allow dogs in certain areas, etc would be helpful!
