This information in the guide is listed for each park large or small. It is an essential and informative guide that even if you are not planning a visit, it is a great read and so informative! It is a MUST HAVE for anyone who enjoys America's National Parks and is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
It is 500+ pages. It is arranged in alphabetical order by state.There are some color pictures at the front of the book but most parks do not have pictures included.
At the beginning of the book, there are general state maps with the locations of the parks marked on them.
Included about each park/site:
* Historical information
* What to See and Do, which includes tips on when best to visit
* Food, Lodging and Supplies - includes camping info, hotels, restaurants, groceries
* Fees, Hours and Regulations
* How to Get There
It would have been nice to have GPS coordinates for the parks, campgrounds, etc. but they are NOT included.
The book I received shows a 2013 copyright and shows it is the 14th edition.
It includes coverage on all 397 national parks, plus scenic trails, battlefields and other historic sites.
This is a great reference book for RVers and all travelers checking out National Parks in the United States.
America's National Park system is huge. To expect a single book to catch every detail and sight is just not possible. This book catches most of the popular sights and is a great reference when planning a trip
