National Parks have been open to the American public since 1872, starting with the nation's first national park: Yellowstone. Currently there are 63 national parks with the latest park being added in December 2020: New River Gorge, located in West Virginia. The National Parks preserve and highlight special places that hold significant status throughout the geography of the USA. They are our natural treasures and each location is worthy of getting to know in order to learn more about it's history, geography and significance to our nation.
With so many destinations to choose from, we decided to put together a US National Parks checklist to help anyone track their American adventures. Whether it be a road trip, RV travels, or a weekend getaway, our country's diverse National Parks should be at the top of everyone's travel list.
