How many U.S. national parks have you visited in your lifetime?

There are 63 national parks across the beautiful United States. And it’s not just parks that are part of the National Park System—there are 423 total units (broadly referred to as national parks) in the National Park System across the U.S. (Seeing all those should keep you busy for a while!)

How many of the 63 U.S. national parks have you visited? Your answer can be with or without your RV—we just want to know the total number. If you’re having a hard time remembering all the parks to count, this Wikipedia list is helpful.

After you vote, please leave a comment and tell us what your favorite national park is. We’re curious to read your answers. Thanks!

Quite a few every winter in the USA and several in our home country of Canada. These are absolute treasures to be enjoyed by all! FYI: We stayed in Moab, UT. last April and had 5 timed entries for Arches NP and they worked brilliantly! Such a busy park, however the timed entry enabled us to never worry about a parking spot at a popular arch or other hike. This April we will complete Utah’s “Mighty Five”, can’t wait!

I really don’t know. I just go where I go and have never noticed if it was a Nat’l Park or not. I started traveling before there were gates, entry times and all of the “nonsense”. Glad I was able to enjoy while it was still enjoyable. I was fortunate enough to roam with the bison, donkeys, bear, deer, elk, moose, and prairie dogs.

I’ll say seven — Smokies, Denali, Wrangell-St. Elias (Alaska), Volcano (Hawaii), Bryce Canyon, Mammouth Cave, and Haleakala (Maui). Don’t care much for national parks though; they invariably are too crowded to suit me.

Are we including not just the Parks, but all the other variations managed by the National Park Service? If so, at 11-20, I way underestimated.We tend to think only of big & scenic, but the NPS is safeguarding far, far more of our national treasure.

We have our National Park Passport book and are trying to hit them all for a stamp. Getting them slowly right now but when we retire in a couple years we will start putting a real effort into it.
