Southeast Publications, the leader in guest guide production for RV Resorts, Campgrounds, Marinas and other Recreational facilities has now launched their very own Mobile App to assist RVers traveling across the US and Canada to locate nearby campsites. Last month, Southeast Publications successfully launched the MobileRVing Mobile App to the Android Market and received great reviews.

“Southeast Publications has always been among the leaders in new technology and marketing concepts for various types of travel and hospitality establishments including RV Parks and Campgrounds throughout the US and Canada,” says Wally Warrick, President of Southeast Publications. “Our current search engine site, MobileRVing.com has been helping RV’ers for years find the right place to stay and things to do in the area.”

The MobileRVing Mobile App provides users with the ability to search nearby RV Resorts and Campgrounds by Name, State or Zip Code radius or simply locate the nearest park. RVers can utilize the MobileRVing Mobile App to view detailed park information and amenities, view the parks guest guide to help pick out your spot, view the mobile guide to view and locate nearby participating businesses such and local restaurants and attractions, bookmark your favorite campsites, and access “direct connect” contact information to make your reservation by contacting the park at the touch of a button. The MobileRVing Mobile App also features GPS Navigation/Mapping to guide you directly to your destination.

MobileRVing Mobile App is free and available for download on the App Store for IPhone & IPad and Google Play for Andriod users.

The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources is partnering with the Pennsylvania Parks and Forests Foundation and ParksByNature Network to offer a state parks and forests mobile app for smart phones.

“This mobile app will allow our visitors, while they are on-the-go, to search for park and forest locations; activities and events; get directions; share photos and even make a reservation,” DCNR Secretary Richard J. Allan said. “This project supports our conservation initiatives by reducing the need for printed material; provides the opportunity to use technology to better connect with visitors; and creates an additional revenue stream for DCNR.”

The software has both free and paid versions that are available through the Apple App Store and Android market. The paid version, which includes additional GPS features, costs $3.99.

“This is an ingenious way to involve and interest more people in our parks and forests. Each app downloaded or purchased will result in a donation to the Pennsylvania Parks and Forests Foundation for revenue-producing projects in state parks,” said Marci Mowery, PPFF president.

The free features are: search by activity of interest on-the-go; search by park, forest or region; stay current on park and forest events; receive news, alerts, and location-based weather updates; access park information such as hours of operation; view maps of facilities, trails and campgrounds; learn about state park or forest history; get directions; get contact information; access online reservations; network through Facebook and Twitter; and?share photos on Flickr.

Paid features include: ability to work with content, maps and features offline; GPS mapping options include road, satellite, hybrid and terrain; pre-programmed state park GIS and points of interest will help guide you; a friend-finder feature lets you keep track of companions while on a trail; a built-in compass can help point to your direction; record, save and recall tracks or waypoints; and let your family and friends know your whereabouts with the alert communication feature.

State parks also serve as economic generators to the communities that surround them, with visitors spending about $928 million annually.
