27 states have national parks, as do the insular areas of American Samoa and the United States Virgin Islands. Alaska and California have the most, each with 8, followed by Utah with 5 and Colorado with 4. The largest national park is Wrangell–St. Elias, at over 8 million acres, followed by three more in Alaska; the smallest is Hot Springs, at less than 6 thousand acres. The total area protected by national parks is approximately 51.9 million acres, for an average of 895 thousand acres but a median of only 317 thousand acres. The most-visited national park is Great Smoky Mountains, followed by the Grand Canyon, with over four million. Fourteen national parks are designated World Heritage Sites.
