The United States of America National Parks Service (www.nps.gov) is one of the most comprehensive National Parks Websites to use. With update maps and direct links to parks, teacher resources and reports, even detailing which parks receive the most amount of visitors. The USA have taken their National Parks seriously and have preserved a vast area of land. That, added to the resources and goal to include people in nature is worthy of merit.
There are in total 59 National Parks, and the Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks in California are two parks that sit side by side one another. The two which are National Parks not included below but within their own pages are American Samoa National Park as this is maintained by the USA but lies in the South Pacific, and the Virgin Islands National Park which is also maintain by the USA but is part of the Virgin Islands.
I have not elected to split Hawaii off from America but included the National Parks within the count.
