National Parks for Disabled Visitors

What to Do and What You Need to Know

When you think of the national parks, you typically envision hiking through the woods, laughing around a campfire, swimming in a lake, and other iconic activities. But for those who are disabled, there’s much more to think about. Can Visitor Centers and other places of interest be reached by wheelchair ramps? Is lodging handicap-accessible? Are tours available to the disabled?

Many parks offer things like camping for the disabled, special programs, and are fully equipped with wheelchair ramps and other amenities.
