List of US National Parks

Here's a list of US National Parks - all 59 of them - organized by state and territory.  Perhaps you'll set a goal to visit all of them in your lifetime!

Wait a minute - I counted more than 59!

You're right. That's because some of the parks extend into more than one state:

  • Death Valley Park is in California and Nevada
  • Great Smoky Mountains Park is in North Carolina and Tennessee
  • Yellowstone Park is in Idaho, Montana and Wyoming

Did you think there were more?

You are not alone! Many people think that there are a lot more than 59 US National Parks. There are more than 380 properties that come under the authority of the National Park Service, but most of them are not National Parks.


So, what are they if they are not National Parks?

I'm glad you asked!

They are

  • Battlefields
  • Battlefield Sites
  • Historical Parks
  • Historic Sites
  • Lakeshores
  • Memorials
  • Military Parks
  • Monuments
  • Parkways
  • Preserves
  • Recreation Areas
  • Reserves
  • Scenic Trails
  • Seashores

For more information on all of the properties administered by the National Park Service, visit their official site.

If you are planning to visit more than a couple of these properties in a 12 month period, the National Parks pass is a good deal. It covers unlimited entrance fees - but you'll need to pay extra if you want to camp.
