List of National Parks In The United States

The following is a list of all 63 National Parks in the United States, along with information regarding their location, when they were established, their size and the number of visitors they had in 2020.

I have had the pleasure of being able to visit 37 of the 63 parks. I've got quite a few more to go, but I'm pretty sure I won't get to all of them as some of them are quite remote, such as American Samoa.
