The Best National Parks in the USA

List Criteria: Officially protected U.S. National Parks only

List of the best national parks in the USA, ranked by travelers, hikers, campers, climbers, sightseers, and people like you. This list of the most beautiful US national parks includes federally protected lands like Yosemite National Park, Glacier National Park, Redwood National Park as well as a few monuments like Rocky Mountain National Park, and administrative units governed by the US National Park Service. From the swampland of the Everglades National Park to the dry dessert land of Death Valley National Park, this list truly shows the diverse nature of America's environment and climate. There is a U.S. national park for everyone. Those interested in camping may want to check out national parks in California, as they offer rugged coastline, waterfalls, and redwood trees. Whereas travelers interested in rock climbing can visit places like the Utah National Parks that offer red rock formations and geological features. 

The NPS maintains the unspoiled nature of US National Parks, ensuring that American holidays spent in the parks are the same for travelers now as they were fifty years ago.  Those planning USA holidays can spend a long period of time in one American national park or pick up a national park pass and visit several different campgrounds in parks. Vote for your favorite U.S. national parks here. Is it Yellowstone? Zion? Sequoia? Consider the best parks for camping and best national parks for spotting wildlife and vote for them to move them to the top of the list.
