Poll: What is Your Favorite State Park in America?

Roadtrekers love State Parks. I just served as one of five travel expert judges for USA Today and a travel story they published to come up with the 20 Best State Parks in America.

When you consider that the 50 states collectively manage more than 6,000 state park units, you can see it was no easy job to whittle the list down to 20 nominees as the best parks.

The newspaper is now asking the public to vote and determine the Top 10. You have until March 30.

Here’s the list of the 20 State Parks our panel picked:

  1. Custer State Park, South Dakota
  2. Indiana Dunes, Indiana
  3. Assateague State Park, Maryland
  4. Fall Creek Falls State Park, Tennessee
  5. Ha Ha Tonka State Park, Missouri
  6. Hearst San Simeon State Park, California
  7. Hunting Island State Park, South Carolina
  8. North Coast Redwood State Park, California
  9. Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park, Michigan
  10. Stone Mountain State Park, North Carolina
  11. Valley of the Fire State Park, Nevada
  12. Antelope Island State Park, Utah
  13. Blue Springs State Park, Florida
  14. Devil’s Lake State Park, Wisconsin
  15. Ecola, Oregon
  16. Grayson Highlands, Virginia
  17. Hueco Tanks, Texas
  18. Letchworth, New York
  19. Watkins Glen, New York
  20. Weeki Wachee Springs State Park, Florida

What is you favorite and why?

  1. What about Glacier National Park? It’s gorgeous. I admit I haven’t been to all of them on your top 20 list but was surprised Glacier wasn’t on it. If you haven’t been there it’s a must see.
