"There is nothing so American as our national parks.... The fundamental idea behind the parks...is that the country belongs to the people, that it is in process of making for the enrichment of the lives of all of us."
                                                                         President Franklin D. Roosevelt

National parks have been set aside for all to experience and appreciate, and National Park System units are moving forward to provide trails, campgrounds, museum exhibits, ranger programs, and other opportunities for visitors with disabilities.

The National Park Service has developed and made available this website, which showcases trails, activities, and other features that are accessible at units of the National Park System nationwide. The information presented here is a sampling of the accessible facilities and programs available to visitors throughout the National Park System.

Please note that a location’s not being highlighted here does not mean it does not have accessible features. To obtain information about places not included in this website, please call them or visit their websites, which can be reached via www.nps.gov and “Find A Park .” A unit may have a section on its website about accessibility. Try looking under “Plan Your Visit;” “Things To Know Before You Come” or checking a website’s index.

This website will remain a work in progress, and we will add information as it becomes available.
