When did you last visit a National Park?

As we’ve said with many of our polls recently, your votes on this poll today might look different than they might have looked six months ago. COVID-19 has halted many of our travel plans, but National Parks have begun reopening and many of you are venturing back out to visit…

We’ll ask you in another poll soon when you are planning on visiting a National Park next, but for today we’re asking: When did you last visit a National Park? Was it recently or has it been a few months? A year? More?

Please tell us in the poll below. Leave a comment too and tell us what your experience was like. Did you stay in a campground or did you just visit for the day? Thanks for your input, it’s always appreciated.

Last year we opted to go to Great Smoky Mountains National Park to wait until a hurricane left the coast before heading to Myrtle Beach SC.

Been stuck near home base since this virus hit. Last time out was in May and we were able to camp at a COE campground at Bull Shouls White River Campground. Not a National Park but Government anyway. Missed our trip to the northwest and lost out on many of the National Parks across that part of the country. Leaving in about two weeks for the UP and getting packed and serviced.

We went to Ft. McHenry last September. I’m a retired Army Officer and they let me raise the flag over the fort. It was quite an honor.

We go to Grand Beach Provincial Park (in Manitoba) every other day as our seasonal site is about 3 miles away. Been through a few state parks last November and in March on our way to and from Florida (snowbirds). Federal parks are not allowing between province visitors due to Covid-19 yet some people are still travelling. We will stay put until it’s safe to travel and the Covid pandemic is under control both in Canada and the USA.

Stayed two wonderful weeks in July 2020 at Estes Park. Made several visits to Rocky Mountain National Park. Had to make reservations ahead of time to visit park before 5 PM. Not a big issue. State mask mandate that most people followed. Made our camping reservations a month in advance but there were always vacancies.

Currently in Teton National Park. In the last few months have visited the Saint Louis Arch, Rocky Mountain NP, Arches NP, Canyon Lands NP, Yellowstone, and Teton. Left for this trip is Mount Rushmore, (although not a national Park Custer State Park) and also The Badlands NP. If weather is good up to North Dakota to visit Roosevelt NP.

Currently working in West Yellowstone MT. Drove into the park Wednesday. Cool today, low 33 and the high is projected to be 49. Summer comes back next week with highs in the high 70’s. Winter will be at 6600 feet soon!

Two weeks ago, Everglades National Park. Always beautiful and you see/notice more each time. A little warm at 95 degrees and 75% humidity, but hey, it beats a hurricane and the white stuff anytime.

How nice that she got to see those places before she passed. My sympathy on the loss of your mother.

We drove through the Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore National park in Michigan this spring when in lockdown for something to do. Nothing was open but the drive while out of the house was wonderful and reminded us of better days to come.

Visited the United 93 Memorial located in Shanksville, PA. Well worth the visit now that it’s almost complete.

Shenandoah National Park in June. Campgrounds In Natl Park weren’t open yet. We stayed at Shenandoah River State Park right outside the park. It was beautiful- great space between sites, really no contact with others.
