Phone App Brings High-Tech to Northwoods CampingSubmitted: 05/23/2013
Story By Kailey Burton


STATEWIDE - Camping in the Northwoods just got a little more high-tech, thanks to a new website and iPhone app. You can download the Northern Highland American Legion State Forest app on your iPhone.

The app lets you see what campsites are available, and reserve your spot online. It also gives information about trails and other activities in the area.

In the "old days" travelers could always call ahead about site availability, but by the time out of town visitors arrive, they might be full.

If you don't have an iPhone, you can also check campground info and availability by going to the DNR's website and searching "Northern Highland."

To find the app search NHAL in the Apple App Store.
