It took a team with true long-term vision, not one just looking for short-term rewards, to make our latest mobile app a reality. There were a few challenges along the way, a few obstacles to be overcome, but thanks to the perseverance of our talented group of designers and developers we have finally released the official mobile application of the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forests!
With our latest app users have all the information they need to navigate and experience Georgia’s two national forests. This app is absolutely free and initially includes information about the facilities and opportunities available in 49 different recreation sites in both the Chattahoochee and Oconee National Forests. These recreational opportunities include hiking, camping, picnicking, fishing, swimming, boating, off-roading, horseback riding, mountain biking, and sightseeing. The sites are presented in both a map and list view and can be filtered by the recreational activities selected by the user. The app also displays the latest news, events and alerts related to the national forests and to specific recreation sites so visitors are always kept informed, safe and secure.
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank those folks at the U.S. Forest Service who had the foresight, insight and patience to initiate this project and see it through to the end. It was their encouragement that helped us get through the tough times and their praise that made it all worthwhile when the job was done. Together we plan to add more recreation sites and more features to the app to make it even easier to use, more fun to use and all the more valuable of a tool for visitors to the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forests!
