It can be used as a quick reference guide or to plan a park trip it has all the critical information you will need. Inside this thick guide are maps with the location of each park, colored photos of a few of the parks listed, an introductory chapter about hiking, preserving nature, respecting the parks, explaining entrance fees and the money used by the fees, staying safe, and other basic information. The following chapters have the parks located aphabetically in the individual states, the guide tells:
- a brief history of the site and the importance.
- what to see and do (facilities, programs and events, tips and hints.
- food, lodging and supplies (camping, hotels in the area or in the park, groceries and gear).

- how to get there
- contact information

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!

I've always liked the format and the thoroughness of Fodor guide books. This book on America's national parks is no exception.

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
* Contacts

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.

This book is best when planning a trip to just about any National Park. Remember to keep it with you because you'll keep going referring to it along the way. This book gets most of the highlights. I'm sure it misses some but I have yet to find them.

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

I will need to do a more in depth search of the parks we want to visit, but this is a good basic starting point. I needed more info about RV camping vs. taking the tent/gear, based on facilities available. No guide could possibly cover all aspects of all the parks in-depth. But, for general knowledge it is a good guide.
