Complete list of National Park units in the US

Here is a complete listing of the 417 official units of the National Parks System in the US. Yes, the National Park Service counts a bit awkwardly—some areas they manage aren’t included, and some places seem to be counted twice—but these are the official National Park units.

Be sure to check out my personal quest to visit each of them (I have less than 50 to go). You can also snag a copy of this spreadsheet to help you count how many you’ve been to.
