The team at Go to National Parks are on a mission to make sure you have the best experience you could ever imagine when visiting our beautiful national parks. We’ve collected and displayed in one place all the important information that you need to know before you begin your next adventure.
The Go to National Parks website is your “go to” for information about each national park in the U.S., and we pride ourselves on ensuring our information is reviewed regularly so that it’s always up to date.
Although you can visit the website for each national park, the team at Go to National Parks identified a need to have all that information in one place and save time hopping from one site to another. We’ve put the main features of each park in alphabetical order to make it even easier to find the information you need, as quickly as possible.
Naturally, the first section starts at A and goes through to I. Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, and Hawaii are in there, as well as other national park destinations.
The next section, J to P, includes Maine, Nevada, and Ohio, and the final section is R to W, including Tennessee, Utah, and Virginia.
We’ve added a page called Exploring the Parks. It will give you some travel ideas for your next trip. We talk a bit more about the national park experience and why we need national parks. What benefits do they provide our community?
The Exploring the Parks section also includes details about national trails all over the country and about the national trail system in general.
The team at Go to National Parks believe that safety is one of the most important considerations when visiting a national park. For that reason, we’ve included a page simply titled Gear. The information on this page is far from simple though. We’ve tried to cover your every need.
The Gear page includes details of the best backpacks and clothing to take with you, in preparation for every type of weather or situation. And, of course, hydration is a big part of that.
We’ve got a section about cooking and tools, also lighting and tents. We know how important shelter is when you’re camping, but we also know how difficult it can be to decide what will work best for you, and what won’t. We’ve done the research for you, so you can quickly see your best options.
Go to National Parks believe that the best way people can stay safe while visiting our national parks is to be armed with as much information as possible. That’s why we’ve included a blog where we’ll post regularly. This is where you’ll find the most up-to-date information about our national parks, the latest releases in new gear and everything else!
Go to National Parks has all the information you need to make sure that your next adventure is a huge success.

Austin Chandler – National Park Services Guide
I’m excited to be part of the team at gotonationalparks.com — We believe that safety is one of the most important considerations when visiting a national park. Personally, I’ve seen first-hand what happens when people aren’t prepared for the wilderness. Truthfully, wilderness survival is no joke. And for all the beauty that nature provides, it’s equally as unforgiving to the unprepared.
That’s why we’ve included a page simply titled Gear. The information on this page is far from simple though. We continuously review gear and search for the best camping, backpacking, and hiking products to keep you safe in your travels.
I oversee the Gear page and work hard to include details of the best backpacks, clothing, and survival gear to take with you, in preparation for every type of weather or situation.
We’re so happy to have you as part of our community and will work hard to keep you up to date when you visit our beautiful and wild national parks.
