Enjoying Maryland’s great outdoors has never been easier with the 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.

“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.”

From identifying an unknown fish, to finding a nearby swimming hole, to locating a dog-friendly State Park, the AccessDNR app provides information and services for the Maryland outdoor enthusiast on the go.

The location-based app allows users to discover and locate State recreation, such as parks and trails, boat launches and hunting lands, in relation to where they are. Customers can refine their location search in radius increments of 10, 25 or 50 miles. This mobile resource also provides on the spot access to fishing and hunting regulations, a fish identifier, late breaking DNR news updates, and much more.

The AccessDNR mobile phone app features:

  • Location-based maps and directions to State-owned lands and attractions
  • Maryland State Park activities and amenities
  • Fishing and hunting season information
  • Hunting harvest mobile submission option
  • Trophy Case, hunting photo sharing through Facebook, Twitter or by email
  • A location-based sunrise/sunset and tide update
  • Maryland fish and shellfish identifier
  • Hunting, fishing and boating regulation guides
  • Breaking DNR news and alerts

Developed by the Maryland Department of Natural Resources and the electronic government facilitator NIC, the app is currently compatible with Apple and Android devices.
