Denali National Park
Two-thirds of the acreage of the entire U.S. Fifteen parks makes up Alaska's National Park system. In 1978 alone, President Jimmy Carter designated 56 million acres of Alaska as national monuments, creating 14 new monuments and enlarging three existing ones. This doubled the size of the national park system and protected highly significant lands for enjoyment by future generations. The Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act (ANILCA) of 1980 designated ten new National Parks and enlarged three of the existing parks in Alaska..
