People have been drawn to the rugged coast of Maine throughout history. Awed by its beauty and diversity, early 20th-century visionaries donated the land that became Acadia National Park. The park is home to many plants and animals, and the tallest mountain on the U.S. Atlantic coast.
The Apostle Islands National Lakeshore is comprised of 21 islands—the Jewels of Lake Superior—and the northern tip of Wisconsin. Despite the park’s startling natural beauty and abundant summertime watersports, it’s relatively unknown outside the region. Lake Superior is the cleanest of the Great Lakes, with crystal-clear scuba diving amid old shipwrecks. The islands' pristine beaches, protected bays, and public docks make for outstanding boating, fishing, and kayaking.
Arches National Park preserves over 2,000 natural sandstone arches, like the world-famous Delicate Arch, as well as many other unusual rock formations.
The geologic deposits of the Badlands contain one of the world's richest fossil beds. Ancient mammals such as the rhino, horse, and saber-toothed cat once roamed here. The park's 244,000 acres protect an expanse of mixed-grass prairie where bison, bighorn sheep, deer, pronghorn, prairie dogs, and black-footed ferrets live today.
Sometimes considered "three parks in one," Big Bend includes mountain, desert, and river environments. An hour’s drive can take you from the banks of the Rio Grande to a mountain basin nearly a mile high.
Within sight of downtown Miami, yet worlds away, Biscayne protects a rare combination of aquamarine waters, emerald islands, and fish-bejeweled coral reefs.
Bryce Canyon National Park is located in southwestern Utah. Bryce Canyon is not actually a canyon but a giant natural amphitheater created by erosion along the eastern side of the Paunsaugunt Plateau.
For pure visual splendor, it’s hard to beat Crater Lake’s brilliant blue water and 2,000-foot cliffs. Oregon’s crown jewel is also one of the cleanest national parks in the country. The five-mile lake is the clearest in the U.S. and the pristine air offers unobstructed views of up to 100 miles. The world-class hiking keeps active visitors occupied with more than 100 miles of trails. Don’t miss the 2.5-mile gradual walk up the Mount Scott Trail—the park’s highpoint—for picture-perfect views of Crater Lake.
Roughly 400,000 intrepid travelers journey to Denali National Park and Preserve each year, primarily between late May and early September. Most come in search of wildlife or glimpses of 20,320' tall Mt. McKinley, the roof of North America.

Nearly five million people see the 1 mile deep Grand Canyon each year. Most of them see it from their car at overlooks along the South Rim (this includes Grand Canyon Village, Hermits Rest, and Desert View). The South Rim is the most accessible part of the park and is open all year.
The Full East to West Adventure
Grand Teton, the highest peak in the rugged Teton Range, rises 13,775 feet above the Jackson Hole valley floor. Grand Teton National Park’s alpine terrain, including a dozen small glaciers, the Snake River, various streams, and numerous crystalline lakes like the 15-mile-long Jackson Lake, provides visitors a welcome reprieve from the heat of summer. Although Grand Teton is only 10 miles south of Yellowstone National Park, it remains remarkably less crowded.
In the shadow of 13,063-foot Wheeler Peak, 5,000 year old bristlecone pine trees grow on rocky glacial moraines. Come to Great Basin National Park to experience the solitude of the desert, the smell of sagebrush after a thunderstorm, the darkest of night skies, and the beauty of Lehman Caves.
The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is world renowned for its diversity of plant and animal life, the beauty of its ancient mountains, and the quality of its remnants of Southern Appalachian mountain culture.
Hawaii Volcanoes National Park displays the results of 70 million years of volcanism, migration, and evolution -- processes that thrust a bare land from the sea and clothed it with unique ecosystems, and a distinct human culture.
Lake Clark National Park and Preserve was created to protect scenic beauty (volcanoes, glaciers, wild rivers and waterfalls), populations of fish and wildlife, watersheds essential for red salmon, and the traditional lifestyle of local residents.
Come witness a brief moment in the ancient battle between the earth shaping forces of creation and destruction. Nestled within Lassen's peaceful mountain forests you will find that hissing fumaroles and boiling mud pots still shape and change the land.
The cool, dark passages of the world’s longest cave system offer a brilliant reprieve from the summer heat. More than 400 miles of the caves, located entirely within Mammoth Cave National Park, have been explored so far. In the summer, rangers lead more than a dozen different tours including the “Wild Cave Tour” that gets visitors off the standard track to climb, crawl, and squeeze through the more remote sections of the cave. Above ground, enjoy boating, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, and riverside camping on the more than 30 miles of the Green and Nolin Rivers that run through the park.
Throughout its 416 square miles of rock-ribbed wildness, Rocky Mountain National Park truly is a land of superlatives. Here at least 60 mountains exceed 12,000 feet, topping off at 14,259 feet on the football field-sized summit of Longs Peak.
Set in the shadow of 14,505-foot Mount Whitney (the highest summit in the contiguous United States), Sequoia and Kings National Park is actually two parks administered as one. The combined park is a backpacker’s dream, with more than 850 miles of remote trails through extensive glacial canyons and old-growth forests—home to giant sequoias standing over 250 feet tall. Summer temperatures in the southern Sierra Nevada foothills often exceed 100 degress, but remain pleasant in the sequoia groves where they rarely top 90.
Located just 75 miles from Washington D.C., Shenandoah National Park is a popular fall foliage destination. But the park is an equally viable escape in the summer, when the Blue Ridge Mountains keep the temperatures as much as 10 degrees cooler than in the valley. And unlike in the fall, this is not the time to cruise along scenic Skyline Drive in your car. Get out and hike to one of the park’s dozen waterfalls, or camp under an open sky—almost all of Shenandoah’s 196,000 gorgeous acres are open to backcountry camping.
Established in 1872, Yellowstone National Park is America's first national park. Located in Wyoming, Montana and Idaho, it is home to a large variety of wildlife including grizzly bears, wolves, bison, and elk.
Yosemite National Park, one of the first wilderness parks in the United States, is best known for its waterfalls, but within its nearly 1,200 square miles, you can find deep valleys, grand meadows, ancient giant sequoias, a vast wilderness area, and much more.
Massive canyon walls ascend toward a brilliant blue sky. To experience Zion, you need to walk among the towering cliffs, or challenge your courage in a small narrow canyon.
