Special Report

The Most Popular National Park in Every State


To identify the most visited national parks in each state, 24/7 Wall St. reviewed recreational visits in the 2006-2016 annual visitation report from the National Park Service (NPS). The NPS aggregates visitation data for various different government land designations and visitation purposes. For the most part, only National Parks (NP) and National Historical Parks (NHP) were considered in our analysis. For states that do not have an NP or NHP, other designations were used in their place.
