Below you’ll find a list of national parks by state, free printable national parks maps, free printable national parks checklists, & more.

To be clear, there are 63 national parks in the US, which are all included in this list of national parks by state. National parks can only be designated by an act of congress – unlike many other units in the national park system which can gain their designation through executive action or even secretarial orders.

National historical parks, for instance, are not national parks, even though they contain the phrase “national park” in their title. Confused yet?

The same goes for national preserves, national monuments and anything else that is not simply named “[Insert Title] National Park”.

Still confused? We wrote an entire post on just that subject for the discerning park-goer.

The national park system is full of incredible places that constitute the all-important natural and cultural heritage of the United States.

These special places, from Gettysburg National Military Park to Yosemite National Park, are of immense importance and are equally deserving of preservation and administration that fits their unique place in the story of this country.

So whether your favorite national park service unit is a national park, a national monument, a national recreation area, or any other type of designation, the point is they’re all important, but there’s only 63 congressionally-designated “national parks”.
