Enjoying Maryland’s great outdoors has never been easier thanks to the Maryland Department of Natural Resource’s new mobile app. The AccessDNR app provides the state’s hunters, anglers, boaters, park-goers ─ anyone seeking outside adventure ─ all of the latest in nature-related recreation, information and news right at their fingertips. The free AccessDNR mobile apps are now available for download in the app stores for Apple and Android devices and can also be accessed through the state’s official website, www.Maryland.gov or DNR’s website, www.dnr.maryland.gov.
“DNR’s new mobile app will make finding and enjoying Maryland’s unparalleled outdoor recreation opportunities considerably easier for our citizens and visitors,” said DNR Secretary Joseph Gill. “We are very excited by this new step forward in providing customers with a more personalized and accessible DNR experience.”
The AccessDNR app provides mobile access to information and services including State park locations, activities and amenities, reservations, trails, boat launch sites, real-time game harvest reporting with trophy case, and mobile licensing and renewals. Additional content includes a Near Me mapping function that will display parks and waterways within a 10, 25, or 50 mile radius of the user and includes detailed driving directions.
The mobile apps were developed at no charge for the Maryland Department of Natural Resources by NIC Inc., through the self-funded eGovernment services contract with the State Department of Information Technology (DoIT).
