Popular sites such as Muir Woods National Monument near San Francisco and Acadia National Park in coastal Maine ironically became so crowded that the National Park Service had to book certain places and attractions in advance.

This is a 61% increase over June 2020, and also a 20% increase over June 2019. This growth represents an all-time high for this month.

Large crowds and limited access destroyed the appeal of the main parks. However, while there may be more people nearby than you would like if you visit Yosemite or the Grand Canyon, there are some fantastic national parks that remain little known.

The site did this by analyzing and comparing visitor review data from Tripadvisor with official 2020 traffic figures for parks with fewer and more than 1 million visitors per year.

Martin Jones, CEO of ParkSleepFly, said it's no surprise that visitors flock to many of the US's exciting national parks.

"However, there is something particularly beautiful about" underrated national parks, "he added." The serenity of the unspoiled places provides a unique experience and the opportunity to truly appreciate the stunning views away from the hustle and bustle. "

The # 1 National Park on ParkSleepFly's list that is underrated - or under-visited given its high levels of satisfaction - is Glacier Bay.

Last year, a park in southeastern Alaska received just 5748 visitors, despite 92,9% of Tripadvisor reviews being "excellent." Its relative remote location in relation to the lower 48 states may be to blame.

Some of the other so-called undervalued parks are also located in isolated locations or within an airplane flight from the mainland of the United States.

These include the second largest Kenai Fjords, also in Alaska, and Sukhoi Tortugas, ranked 7th, a chain of remote islands west of Key West, Florida - and Haleakala, on the Hawaiian island of Maui.

When it comes to overrated national parks that mostly deserve praise from Tripadvisor reviewers, Indiana Dunes in Indiana took the top spot. While nearly 2020 million people visited the park in 2,3, only 51% of the park's Tripadvisor reviews were great.

Rounding out the top five is the Cuyahoga Valley in eastern Ohio, Hot Springs in Arkansas, Yosemite in central California and Zion in Utah, all of which are incredibly popular in terms of visitor numbers.
