National Parks Traveler is the brainchild of national park enthusiast Kurt Repanshek. Over the year Repanshek has written for National Geographic Traveler and a host other distinguished publications. His online magazine has been in circulation for about a decade, and while it is not affiliated with the National Parks System, it is an amazing resource that educates the public on the unique landscapes of our nation’s public lands.
National Park Traveler is continuously growing in popularity. It has been featured in many news publications, including the Wall Street Journal and the LA Times. It was also included in an official publication distributed by the US State Department.

Several contributors, each with their own professional skills, provide information for visitors to enjoy. National Parks Traveler offers readers a unique blend of featured content and news about the national parks of the US.

Here is where you will learn how to get a campsite during the busy summer months, and how to avoid the crowds at the most popular national parks.
