National Parks Vacations

National Parks Vacations. All of the National Parks in the United States are managed by The National Park Service, created by an Act of Congress in 1916.

The NPS mandate is to promote and regulate the use of all the Federal areas known as national parks, monuments, wildlife preserves, and reservations, and to conserve the scenery and the natural and historic objects and the wildlife therein and to provide for the enjoyment of the same in such manner and by such means as will leave them unimpaired for the enjoyment of future generations.

The NPS has grown from a single park, Yellowstone National Park, established in 1872, to a national system of approximately 385 areas. Once identified primarily with the western United States, now over half of the national park areas are east of the Mississippi River.

Over 270 million visits are made each year to our National Parks to experience the splendor and wonder. You can search, find, and compare information, news, weather, and other points of interest for each national Park right here at National Parks Vacations.
