Find national parks and forests
Search for a park or forest
- Search for a park or forest by location – find a park or forest in your area or in a new region you’d like to visit.
- Browse parks by facilities - many parks have facilities for visitors such as picnic areas, camp fire and generator allowances, barbeques, and toilets; but you may need to be self-sufficient if the park is new or remote.
- Find parks and forests for camping - facilities are different at each camping area, so make sure you read the camping information provided at each park or forest.
- Browse parks and forests with wheelchair access - many parks and forests allow access for people using a wheelchair, people with vision impairment, and parents with children in strollers. You should check which parks are suitable for your specific needs.
