Activities & Products by Park

The seven park units of NCCN include three large, predominantly natural areas, Olympic National Park, Mount Rainier National Park, and North Cascades National Park Complex, and four smaller, predominantly historic areas, Fort Vancouver National Historic Site, San Juan Island National Historical Park, Ebey's Landing National Historical Reserve, and Lewis and Clark National Historical Park.

The three larger parks showcase the variety of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems native to this region. The four historic parks preserve snapshots of significant cultural milestones in the development of the Pacific Northwest. All the parks share ecological systems and associated anthropogenic influences including invasions of exotic species, altered fire regimes, degraded air and water quality, heavy recreational pressure, habitat loss outside NPS boundaries, and climate change with associated sea level rise.
