The National Park System is the extended family of the 59 National Parks. These properties, often referred to as national parks (lowercase), have various designations and are all managed by the National Park Service. In most instances a National Park and its neighboring National Preserve, for example, are counted as two separate units. In other cases multiple (adjacent) NPS properties are counted as one unit. This list reflects those differences to produce the official count of 417 units in the National Park System. Our NPS maps also include 25 NPS Affiliated Areas.
