In 2015, more than 307 million people visited the 410 sites that make up the National Park Service. And for good reason—in the century since its creation, the service has offered Americans and visitors a protected slice of the country's lushest landscapes and most staggering vistas. Countless pieces of prose have exalted the red layers of the Grand Canyon, the distinctive wildlife of Montana's Glacier National Park, and that end-of-the-world sensation of hiking on the edges of Alaska's Denali.
Whether you're coming off a 10-day backpacking trip or a three-mile afternoon hike, having bucket-list adventures in America's wilds can really work up an appetite. Luckily there are plenty of places to eat both inside the parks and in nearby towns. And we're not just talking about wilderness canteens, either. These restaurants have padded booths, farm-to-table fare, and an honest-to-goodness "bacon sampler." Bon appétit, nature-lovers.
