Traveling Gluten Free in Our National Parks
Here’s the 411 on National Parks, activities to do, when to go and how to navigate the park you choose to visit. I'll also take you on a brief tour of the National Park Service website and tell you about the National Park Foundation, why you want to purchase a National Park Pass, why you want to bring gluten free food inside the parks, and how to reserve a camping spot!
National Park Activities
So, what can you do in a national park? What do you want to do? Find out about local geologic features? How about the history of how our country's government formed? Or maybe you want to learn about the ecosystem of the Everglades? Sound overwhelming? Why not start at the National Park website where you can search by activity, find out about ranger-guided hikes, tours, and presentations and also see if the park you are visiting has the Junior Ranger Program for kids.
When you visit the National Park website, you can:
Search for National Parks by state
see what parks, monument and national lands are in the state
find out what activities each individual park has to offer
Purchase a National Park annual pass (highly recommended!)
Eating Gluten Free in National Parks
Unfortunately, this has proven almost hopeless as the parks only provide mostly fast food. Every once in a while, you can find an upscale lodge with a dining room that can accommodate Celiac disease, but overall, plan on bringing your own food with you to be safe.
