This is the new edition of an annually published directory of information on every national and state park in the U.S., as well as selected urban parks, national forests and wildlife refuges, and national parks in Canada. In addition, it covers a wide range of recreational areas, historic sites, battlefields, monuments, forests, preserves, memorials, seashores, trails, and other designated recreational areas administered by federal land and state park agencies. New features include new sections on National Scenic Byways and Urban Parks, web addresses for each entry, and index enhancements. The front matter contains information on entrance passes, job opportunities, and use of the indexes. Approximately 5,000 entries present contact information and descriptive details regarding acreage, facilities, recreational activities, special features, and location, with directions from the nearest highway. The volume also contains 50 state maps, a 12-page section of color maps, a listing of about 300 park-related organizations and associations, as well as classification, special features, geographic, and master indexes.
