State Parks are giving National Parks a run for their money, drawing an average of 807 million visitors annually. So, what's with all the hype? Well, for one, each state has a ton of protected land with State Park designation – a whopping 18,694,570 acres, to be exact. With 8,565 parks and 14,672 trails to explore, chances are there's a beautiful park right in your backyard. But if proximity isn't enough to entice you, our State Parks are also known to offer the same amount of grandeur, history, and natural beauty as any other wild place in the states. As a tribute to our beloved State Parks, the Discoverer Blog has put together a list of the best State Park in each of the 50 states.
