There's an App for Wisconsin's Northern Highland-American Legion State Forest

State forest information available via new app. (Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, 8/20/2011)

Excerpt: The state Department of Natural Resources says the app was developed in partnership with the North Lakeland Discovery Center in Manitowish Waters and is available through the Discovery Center's website.

State officials say the app will reduce the number of paper trail maps the forest must print. That saves money that can be used for other needs

Save money?  It's not as if the maps weren't previously available electronically.

Apples to oranges.

For some reason, the DNR decided to tally just "camping attendance" in the northern forests.  The attendance numbers for southern forests and state parks still include all visitors.
