In 1872, Yellowstone National Park was established by the United States, becoming the world's first national park. As of 2017, the National Park Service administers a total of 417 "units" spread across 19 categories. These include 59 National Parks, 87 National Monuments, 78 National Historic Sites, 15 National Rivers, plus 178 more. There are maps available for most of these nationally protected areas.
All of our National Park maps are listed on their appropriate state map pages - go to our Maps of the USA home page for each state's map listings.
In addition, links to the three main publishers of national park maps are listed below. In addition, there are several publishers, such as Beartooth and Rufus, that produce excellent maps for one or two national parks. These publishers' maps are found on the appropriate states map page.

National Geographic's wall map of National Parks of the United States highlights the nearly 400 magnificent parks across America. The country is represented in subtle earth-tones with shaded mountain relief and intricately drawn river systems. Photos capture some of the diverse landscapes preserved and protected by the national park system.
Separate inset maps provide detail and descriptions of seven of the parks: Yellowstone, Yosemite, Acadia, Grand Canyon, Great Smoky Mountains, Everglades, and Zion. Parks located in U.S. territories are included on an inset world map.
