18 National Park Instagram Accounts to Follow in 2018

On most evenings at our base camp in St. Paul, in between trip planning and meal prep you’ll find at least one of us, phone in hand, scrolling through national park Instagram accounts.

Instagram is our favorite place to catch up on national park news, research the places we’re going next, and catch those ‘virtual-vacations’ that get us through our busy professional lives.

In 2016 and 2017 we posted our favorite national park Instagram accounts we follow.  Most of those still rank high on our list for gorgeous photos and the latest park news.

If you haven’t checked out these lists, go ahead and follow these accounts first:

15 More National Park Instagrams to Follow

Then, with a little help from our Facebook community, this week we put together a new list of national park Instagram accounts we think you should be following right now.  Some are friends we’ve picked up along the way in our “Park Chaser Profiles” series. A few on the list are official NPS accounts or park rangers.  And some are just there for fun.

Oh, and don’t forget to follow us on Instagram – @parkchasers.  It’s where we share more ‘behind-the-scenes’ photos and posts of our travels and pictures that don’t make it into posts here on the blog.
