What’s With All These National Park System Units, Anyway?

Ever wondered what the difference is between a national park, a national monument, a national recreation area, etc?

The other day, during a Zoom meeting, a member asked if a national park was a single unit. Another member wondered if people understood the difference between different units within the National Park System. Heck, I write about national park units I’ve visited and sometimes I need a little primer. So, I wrote an article for the National Parks Traveler about the differences between units found within the National Park System.

99.9% of my images are captured in national parks. I contribute photos and articles about National Park System units to the National Parks Traveler. So the latest Traveler’s View is definitely worth a read.
