Map-making app for Andoid?

Are there any apps that will let me create my own maps on the computer (basically add makers) and then look up those maps on my Android device? There are lots of online sites to create maps but I don't think I'll have an internet connection where I'm going so something offline would be great.

Google removed the "My Maps" feature in Google Maps so unfortunately that's not an option. Though there might be some 3rd party apps that could download the info from Google and load a custom map? Any suggestions?

I have the Google maps application installed on my Androud tablet and it quite functional, including Saved Places.

Google seems to have removed the ability to save small sections of maps in their current Android release. Saving (starring) places won't help if the OP does not have a data connection.

Exactly. I've found the free app Orux Maps does the job quite well.
