Overview

Every year millions of people travel to cherished national parks such as Yellowstone and Yosemite to see some of the most stunning landscapes on Earth. Produced in cooperation with the National Park Foundation, this is the official guide to all 397 sites in the national park system, including natural, historic, and cultural treasures.  It’s invaluable as a quick reference as well as to help plan the trip of a lifetime. 

Competitive Advantage:
No other book covers all of the 397 sites under National Park Service jurisdiction, making this a comprehensive reference—plus, this is the only guide officially endorsed by the National Park Foundation.

Expanded Coverage:
This comprehensive new edition includes the latest information on facilities and programs as well as visiting tips and succinct advice on food and lodging inside and outside the parks. 

Special Features:
Organized alphabetically by state, this indispensable guide features not only parks but also seashores, trails, wild and scenic rivers, battlefields, and historic sites. Six icons for different types of parks make it easy to identify sites of interest. Each listing is packed with essential information: a brief history of the site and why it’s significant; what to see and do, with facilities, programs, and tips; fees and hours; and contacts. Many sites have recommendations for food, lodging, and supplies. An index organizes sites by special interests from Civil War sites to presidential history and more. Other special sections include information on national heritage areas and national trails systems. Sales of the guide support the National Park Foundation in its effort to preserve America’s greatest treasures.

Indispensable Trip Planning Tools:
About Your Visit sections provide helpful tips on making the most of a trip. Each site listing contains detailed contact information as well as a section on how to get there. Twenty-two pages of easy-to-use regional maps make it easy to locate each site and see what’s nearby.

This book is the official guide produced in cooperation with the National Park Foundation.
