Best Ways to Tag National Parks on Instagram

If you’re visiting a specific national park during your next road trip, there are a few popular ways to tag the park so others in the area can find your photos and posts.

The best ways to tag national parks on instagram

Tag the Park Name – The first and most popular way to tag national parks on Instagram is just to use the entire park name in a hashtag.

  • #yellowstonenationalpark
  • #glaciernationalpark
  • #mountrushmorenationalmemorial
  • #indianadunesnationalpark
  • #dinosaurnationalmonument

Tag the Name + NPS – Another way to tag a particular park is to tag the first part of the park name, followed by adding NPS, for National Park Service

  • #glaciernps
  • #zionnps
  • #archesnps
  • #utahnps
  • #midwestnps

Tag the Name + Photography – Since Instagram is all about sharing photos, one of the easiest ways to tag a national park is to use the park name, followed by photography. This tells Instagram and Facebook to show the post in feeds for people who tend to like and follow travel photography.

  • #muirwoodsphotography
  • #acadiaphotography
  • #isleroyalephotography
  • #yosemitephotography
  • #olympicnationalparkphotography

Tag the Name + Activity – If you’re hiking, biking, paddling, or road tripping in a national park, you can tag the park name and the activity together to help others learn more about what there is to do in a national park.

  • #glacierhiking
  • #grandcanyonrafting
  • #evergladesfishing
  • #acadiasunrise
  • #pearlharbormuseum
