Subpar Parks: America’s Most Extraordinary National Parks and Their Least Impressed Visitors

This hilarious collection makes a great national park gift. 

I dare you to read this without laughing out loud. It’s a favorite book among national park lovers because it is just so funny.

Artist Amber Share created National Parks posters featuring quotes from those who weren’t as impressed with the parks they visited as some others were. In fact, there are people who post 1-star reviews of parks like Glacier, Yellowstone, and Acadia.

Mind-boggling, I know, but it’s apparently true. And they’re hilarious. Take, for example, the person who visited Yellowstone and then took the time to write online: “Save yourself some money, boil some water at home.”

This book is perfect for National Park lovers with a good sense of humor.
