Year after year, hundreds of millions of visitors spend more than a billion hours enjoying the magnificent, astonishingly diverse realm overseen by America's National Park Service. And the National Geographic Society has been involved with this forward-looking, environmentally-minded department from the very beginning.


This extensive travel planner covers not just the 58 official National Parks but also the nearly 350 additional properties in the Park Service's domain. The premier parks are described in detail, but equal attention is given to the National Monuments, Memorials, Preserves, Historic Sites, Battlefields, Cemeteries, and Seashores, not to mention a network of "National Trails" and even the intriguingly referred to "Affiliated Areas." From Yellowstone to the Statue of Liberty, from the hallowed ground of Gettysburg National Military Park to the Pacific waters shrouding Hawaii's U.S.S. Arizona Memorial, this catalog spans American history and territory both, with practical advice on how to reach each park, when to go, and what to do there.


  • Hardcover
  • 528 pages; 275 color photographs, 68 maps

Mel White has written or contributed to more than 15 National Geographic books, including the two-volume Guide to Birdwatching Sites and the Guide to America's Outdoors: Southwest, and has contributed more than 50 articles to the Society's magazines, National Geographic and National Geographic Traveler.

This GREAT book describes our U.S. national parks, one by one, each one with turn by turn directions, sights to see, accomodations (or lack thereof), trail or rafting ease/difficulty,times to go/avoid, sights to see, AND has contact WEB SITES, phone numbers etc. Wonderfully enjoyable reading, even if you don't go to more than a few, and well worthwhile to own if you DO plan on going to ANY! I have visited some of the described Parks, unfortunately not all, and have found it to be quite accurate, correct, and informative. You will NOT regret this purchase!

Bad pictures

The few small pictures do not show the parks' best features. Hardly any info on the parks. I was very disappointed with this book.

              I was very dissapointed in this book. I am going to Yosemite National Park and was hoping to get some information on places to visit. This book just gives brief information about each National Park which I didn't find useful.
