Alaska National Parks
If you love National Parks, schedule a trip to Alaska, as soon as possible!
Alaska has the most National Parks (at eight, tied with California) and some of the largest National Parks (seven out of ten of the biggest National Parks in the United States are located in Alaska). Alaska also has one of the least visited National Parks (Kobuk Valley National Park, which receives just 3,000 visitors per year).
Interestingly, most of the National Parks in Alaska were formed in 1980. The Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act, which was signed by President Jimmy Carter, helped boost Alaska tourism. Denali National Park, however, was formed in 1917, and is the most popular National Park in Alaska.
