This book is an insider's guide to finding the best lodges throughout the country and securing a reservation well in advance to beat the crowds. The authors, national park experts, tell readers how to leave behind the hassles and headaches and make trip planning painless. Having visited nearly every national park area and lodge in the country, they share their sage advice on how to choose a lodge that will best suit an individual's taste and needs.

Every single lodge accommodation run by the National Park Service is featured, ranging from luxurious inns to rustic cabins. Each entry includes firsthand information about the property; room rates; reservation phone numbers; exact location within the park; availability of food or meals; transportation details; facilities; activities; and detailed maps.
