According to a press release, Tyler Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of integrated software and technology services to the public sector, announced today that Nevada State Parks is modernizing its first-come, first-served policy with a new cloud-based reservation software from Tyler, powered by AWS.
This new system is set to revolutionize the visitor experience by allowing park-goers to purchase day-use passes conveniently and book campsites, cabins, and special event reservations online.
The collaboration aims to streamline the reservation process and enhance the overall experience for the millions of visitors who flock to Nevada’s 27 state parks annually.
In 2022 alone, nearly four million visitors explored the parks’ natural beauty. Nevada State Parks administrator Bob Mergell said that with outdoor recreation on the rise, the online reservation software will “make it easier than ever to discover the beauty of Nevada.
“Last year, nearly four million visitors explored Nevada’s 27 beautiful state parks. With outdoor recreation on the rise, our new online reservation software will make it easier than ever to discover the beauty of Nevada,” said Mergel.
“Nevada’s goal in working with Tyler Technologies is to manage park operations and protect natural resources more efficiently through technology, and we expect our visitors and staff will appreciate the convenience of a digital experience,” Mergel added.
The digital platform will provide park officials with valuable data and insights, enabling them to focus on educating visitors and protecting and preserving the natural environment.
The new system will eliminate time-consuming manual paper processes, allowing park staff to manage park operations and conserve natural resources through technology efficiently.
Sascha Ohler, senior vice president of Outdoor Recreation at Tyler, highlighted that their technology has proven to help state park clients increase camping reservations and streamline payment processing.
“Our technology is proven to help our state park clients increase camping reservations and efficiently process payments,” Ohler said.

As the new reservation system is implemented, visitors can look forward to planning and scheduling their Nevada State Park adventures easily and confidently, knowing their accommodations will be reserved for their visit.
