The Passport to your National Parks book is a great way to keep track of your National Park visits. The traditional book has 104 pages, is priced at $9.95 and can be purchased in most visitor centers (unless they are out of stock) or online. A special edition is available in 2016, honoring the National Park Service centennial.
The book breaks down the parks into regions, with a map and list of sites at the beginning of each region, and brief park descriptions. It lists National Parks, National Historic Sites, National Monuments and National Recreation Areas. There are spaces on each page for the annual park stickers, and also the cancellation stamps, which you can get at most visitor centers. The stamps are dated, so it’s a lot of fun to look back and see exactly when you lasted visited a park.
If you plan on visiting many parks, your pages will fill up rather quick with cancellation stamps, and it may be worth considering the Explorer Edition.
It is binder style with removable pages, so you don’t have to carry the entire thing with you on short trips. It also has larger maps, better descriptions and more space for cancellation stamps! Get your Passport to your National Parks today!
