List Description

Note that this list includes the National Parks in the US Virgin Islands and American Samoa. Although these dependencies are not formally part of the 50 United States for many purposes, the National Parks located there are run by the same federal agency as all other parks. Therefore, these park points are included on this land/ownership US-based list.
