I was not an outdoorsy kid, but America...fuck yeah!

Here’s my ranking thus far

1 Yosemite
2 Glacier
3 Bryce Canyon
4 Grand Canyon
5 Zion
6 Badlands
7 Death Valley
8 Rocky Mountain
9 Mammoth Caves
10 Great Smoky Mountains
11 Arches
12 Everglades
13 Yellowstone - if people in rv’s didn’t exist, this would be higher
14 Dinosaur Monument
15 Petrified Forest

High on my list:
Hawaii Volcanoes
Acadia

Wondering if Teddy Roosevelt is worth a camping trip.

I went to Redwood as a kid. I remember it being very cool but the car ride to the park being miserable due to the circular/ spiraling nature of the road in. Our family of 5 had a small Ford Tempo rental car and by the time we had wound all the way up to the park everyone in the car had thrown up but me and my dad.

The Smokey Mountains had some cool hiking for sure but it's a little samey otherwise. And Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg is probably one of the hokiest places in America.

the fact that verb was the only one to mention acadia automatically disqualifies the rest of you fools from judging national parks. you all should be ashamed of yourselves.

Growing up 2 hours from there meant a lot of vacations have been taken there.

Olympic is my personal favorite. We go there a few times a year and just disappear in the forests. It's such a sparsely inhabited area of the country, i love it so much.
