Did you know that the United States National Park System protects 85 million acres of land? Those 85 million acres are dived up into 424 different national park units. These units range in size and title from an 8.3 million-acre Wrangell – St. Elias National Park to a 0.2 acre Thaddeus Kosciuszko National Memorial. These units tell the story of the United States both as a country and land with a rich human and geological history beyond the 500 years since the Europeans arrived in the United States.

Here is a complete list of all 424 national parks by state.

This article was updated on December 28, 2020 due to the redesignation of New River Gorge National River to New River Gorge National Park and Preserve.

How many National Parks are there in the United States?

This question has caused many an argument but there are two answers to this question. The National Park Service manages 424 different units that collectively make up the National Park System. There are 62 units that have the designation as a National Park.

Click here for a detailed guide on the number of national parks in the United States.

What are the National Park Service Designations?

There are 14 different designations in the National Park System. Units are found in all 50 states as well as the District of Columbia, and the territories of Guam, American Samoa, U.S. Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico. According to National Park Service, the agency hold each of the 424 units in equal standing and fund each park according to their individual needs regardless of their designation.

What do the National Park Designations mean?

In an ideal world where politicians aren’t looking to score positive brownie points, the NPS system would have a set of standard definitions for designations, and all the designations would match the unit. But we don’t live in an ideal world and politics wins over logic and consistency. Additionally, how the park is created plays a role in the park’s designation.

This is a breakdown of National Park nomenclature as to what they would mean in an ideal world. I generally divide the terms up into four main sections: Natural Parks, Historical Parks, Water Parks and Everything Else.

Natural Park Designations

  • National Parks
  • National Preserves
  • National Parkways
  • National Scenic Trails

National Parks are generally a large area of wilderness that is unique and breathtaking.  The national park designation has the strictest protection and the most restrictions for use. These areas designed to protect large areas of land and keep the area wild.  Almost all of the National Parks protect an amazing ecosystem and natural feature from the reefs for Dry Tortugas National Park to the deserts of Saguaro National Park to the Tundra of Gates of the Arctic National Park.  A few parks don’t fit this mold such as Gateway Arch National Park and this is due to that political brownie points. Ideally, these units are the crème de la crème.

National Preserves are an interesting bunch.  Some preserves are free-standing units. Some are managed in conjunction with another unit but still counted as a separate unit. Other units have preserve in the name but are counted as another unit type. Preserves are intended to protect a certain resource in the area while allowing for other limited resource extraction activities. These could include hunting, fishing, mining, and/or oil/gas exploration.

Valles Caldera National Preserve is a free-standing unit in New Mexico. Denali National Preserve is a separate unit that is managed with Denali National Park. Oregon Caves National Monument and Preserve is a single unit with Monument and Preserve in its designation but is counted as a National Monument.

National Parkways are scenic roadways that are perfect for a leisurely drive and are meant to be enjoyed. The parkways often connect with other units in the National Park System and have recreational opportunities beyond the auto tour.

National Scenic Trails are long-distance footpaths that give the hiker the option to hike the whole trail or just sections of it. These trails provide a scenic walk. These trails often pass through other NPS units and are also part of the National Trails System.

Water Park Designations

  • National Lakeshores
  • National Seashores
  • National Rivers
  • National Wild and Scenic Rivers and Riverways
  • National Recreation Areas

National Lakeshores and National Seashores are areas that preserve natural areas of shoreline. The only different between the these unit designations is the body of water the shoreline protects. Lakeshores are all located on freshwater lakes. Seashores are found on the Atlantic, Gulf and Pacific coasts.

National Rivers and National Wild and Scenic Rivers and Riverways are similar to Lakeshores and Seashores except they protect rivers and streams. Each of these free-flowing waterways has an outstanding use as a natural, cultural, or recreational river.

National Recreation Areas are protected areas of land near federal dams or combinations of local and state parks.  These areas have the fewest protections and are designed more to provide areas of fun.  They allow greater access and activities such as mountain biking, jet skiing, hiking, climbing. 

Historical Park Designations

  • National Battlefields
  • National Battlefield Parks
  • National Battlefield Sites
  • National Military Parks
  • National Historical Parks
  • National Historic Sites
  • International Historic Sites
  • National Memorials

National Battlefields, National Battlefield Parks, National Battlefield Sites, and National Military Parks are all sites where significant military battles have occurred or focus on military history. These Battlefields and Battlefield Sites generally consist of one site while the Battlefield Parks and Military Parks have multiple sites that may not be connected.

National Historical Parks, National Historic Sites, and International Historic Sites all focus on the human history of the Native American Nations and the United States. The International Historic Sites protects a site relevant to both US and Canadian history. The Historic Sites focus on one specific place while the Historical Parks protect historical areas with more than one site and a more complex event.

National Memorials are just what the names said – memorials.  These units commemorate an event of a person and they are not always located in a site near the event or where the person the commemorate lived. Some of these sites are simply known as Memorials.

Other Park Designations

  • National Monuments
  • National Reserves
  • Other Designations

National Monuments are a mixed bag and not all National Monuments are managed by the National Park Service. National Monuments can be created by a Presidental declaration. This means that a President can create a National Monument out of any federal lands that they feel need protection. For this reason, some national monuments protect natural features while others protect historical sites.

National Reserves are a strange designation and I’m not sure why it exists, but these units seems to be units where management is a collaboration between private, state and federal lands. Of the two National Reserves, one is a nature focused and the other is historical.

Other Designations are basically any unit that doesn’t have one of the other designations. Some of these had an established name upon creation and an additional designation wasn’t added upon creation. Most of these sites are in the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia.
