Amazon.com Review

The Complete Guide to the National Park Lodges is utterly comprehensive, describing lodgings from the Ahwahnee in California's Yosemite National Park to Zion Lodge in Utah. Fine hand-sketched illustrations show travelers exactly what their dollar will buy them. The Scotts provide essential information on rooms, rates, locations, seasons, food, facilities, and activities for each entry in long, detailed passages, as well as in bullets for quick reference. Consider it the Lonely Planet of park guides: "North Rim or South Rim? The two sides of the Grand Canyon are so different that they share little other than the same canyon and river. The more popular South Rim has easier canyon access, more facilities, and many more visitors.... Vistas from the North Rim seem more intimate, and fewer people will be standing next to you straining for the same view." Going far beyond the dry, encyclopedic style one might expect, this guide offers descriptions of furnishings and amenities--so you'll know if your room will have a TV and a sofa bed, or if you'll need to bring your own wood for the fireplace. Whether you're planning to view geysers at the Old Faithful Lodge Cabins in Yellowstone or take a gander at Kilauea from Volcano House, the oldest continually operated hotel in Hawaii, The Complete Guide will tell you everything you need to know, and more.

An added bonus: The Globe Pequot Press will donate one dollar from the sale of each copy of this book directly to the National Parks Foundation to help repair trails, clean up waterways, protect animal populations, conduct research, and preserve historical and cultural sites. --Jhana Bach --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
If you like to stay in National Parks, this is the book for you. It provides all the detail needed to weigh all your options for lodging in our National Parks (price, location, views, room options, restaurants). In some cases it even gives recommendations for certain rooms because of the view or the size of the room.
Even if you never thought about staying at a National Park Lodge get this book. There are some wonderful places to stay and staying in the park, even if it costs a little more, adds so much to the total park experience.
I will not be without this book when I travel. I just wish the authors would write a similar book for State Parks.

As a frequent visitor to the national parks, I found the information in this book to be accurate and useful. We had stayed in several of the lodges mentioned in the book but found out about some places we never knew existed. The lodge in North Cascades is one of our favorites. I recommend this book to both experienced and novice travelers.

We used this guide to plan our summer trip to the national parks. It helped us decide on which lodges to choose and what rooms to ask for. What a jewel of a book!

This book is as good as taking a guided tour. It gives you all the information you would ever want concerning lodges in National Parks. Its easy to read with information masterfully presented. I would strongly recommend that anyone taking a trip across the USA ensure that they include a copy of "National Park Lodges" in their suitcase. Exploring National Parks, using this book as a reference, will make a truly fascinating vacation.
