EXPERIENCE YOUR AMERICA™
The National Park Service cares for special places saved by the American people so that all may experience our heritage.

America's BEST idea

We didn't create democracy (although we did raise it to a new level) but our national park system really is, in the words of writer and historian Wallace Stegner "the best idea we ever had. Absolutely American, absolutely democratic, they reflect us at our best rather than our worst."
