417 park units covering 85 million square acres in every state, the District of Columbia and 4 territories suffer from more than $11 billion in overdue maintenance repairs.
Repairs include aging visitor centers, outdated water and electrical systems, trails, historic buildings, military infrastructure, docks, campgrounds, roads and bridges. Facilities are aging and have not received the necessary investments for their upkeep over the years which could lead to irreparable damage.
