Digitized & Downloadable Federal Park Maps

Community Member kudos icon + Community member

The National Park Service currently pays millions of dollars to print park maps for visitors. Ironically, they just fall apart after being used. They are also cumbersome to keep safely stored and away from the weather. My suggestion is for the National Park Service to offer visitors the option of downloading park maps onto their phones/pc in advance of their trip, or when they enter the park. Since most phones now include GPS, having these maps would be a great navigation tool..

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
