USA State and National Parks Trivia Questions

1. In prehistoric times, Mt. Mazama in Oregon stood much higher than it does today. The eruption of it created what well-known lake?

From Quiz
National Parks: America's Best Idea

Answer: Crater Lake

Mt. Mazama's enormous caldera holds all of Crater Lake inside it. The mountain erupted in around 5,677 BC, reducing its height from about 12,000 feet to 7,000. It's estimated that the eruption was 42 times larger than the eruption of Mt. St. Helens in 1980. The Klamath tribe, native to the area, recorded it as being a battle between their god of the underworld and their sky god. Crater Lake is the ninth deepest lake in the world and the deepest in the USA. There are no streams or rivers that supply it with water- it comes solely from rainfall and snow.

2. Yellowstone National Park became the world's first National Park in 1872. The 1871 expedition into the region included a painter whose drawings and paintings helped convince the government to create the park. What was his name?

From Quiz US National Parks Part 1

Answer: Thomas Moran & Moran

Moran's work, along with photographs by William Henry Jackson, who was on the same expedition, had a major impact on the government officials who approved the park. The park, which sits on top of a large reservoir of magma, includes a high mountain lake and a major canyon in addition to the wide range of thermal features.

3. In 1996, during the Summer Olympic Games, Olympic Park was once the site of a bombing that claimed the lives of two people and injured 111 more. In what city were these games held?

From Quiz US Parks, Monuments and Landmarks IV

Answer: Atlanta

Olympic Park is located in Atlanta, Georgia. During the 1996 Olympics, one person died as a direct result of the bomb blast and another due to a heart attack. Eric Robert Rudolph was arrested by the FBI for the bomb attack and sentenced to life in prison in 2005.

4. This national monument, which had a major part in the movie "Close Encounters of the Third Kind", is located in Wyoming. What is the name we know it by?

From Quiz US Parks, Monuments and Landmarks

Answer: Devils Tower

Devils Tower National Monument is located in the northeastern part of Wyoming, not far from the Black Hills of South Dakota. This is a popular American destination for rock climbers.

5. Where is Aniakchak National Monument located?

From Quiz Aniakchak National Monument

Answer: Alaska Peninsula, Alaska

Aniakchak National Monument is part of the Pacific Ring of Fire, located southwest of Katmai National Park and Becharof National Wildlife Refuge on the Alaska Peninsula. Its location on the Ring of Fire is significant, considering the primary attraction of the monument is a large, active volcano.

6. Central Park in New York City was created in 1857. It sits on 843 acres of land and receives well over 30 million visitors a year. In which of the five boroughs of the city can this national treasure be found?

From Quiz A Stroll Through Central Park

Answer: Manhattan

Originally created in 1857, Central Park wasn't officially completed until 1873. In 1962, it was designated as a National Historical Landmark. It was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux. The pair won a contest in 1858 to design the park with an entry they called the Greensward Plan. The park is in the shape of a rectangle and is bordered by West 110th Street, West 59th Street, 8th Avenue and Fifth Avenue. Central Park has numerous public activities that run at different times of the year. It boasts over 24,000 trees including 1700 American Elms. Many species of plants, birds and animals live there, including the red-tailed hawk and the eastern chipmunk. There are also more than 20 playgrounds and many baseball fields and handball courts.

7. What national park is the most-visited park in the US? This national park is located in two states: Tennessee and North Carolina.

From Quiz The Amazing U.S. National Parks

Answer: Great Smoky Mountains National Park

Not only is the Great Smoky Mountains National Park a national park, but it is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The national park includes Clingmans Dome, the highest point in Tennessee.

8. Once home to the Anasazi, multistory cliff dwellings overlook Montezuma Valley in Colorado. Its name in Spanish means "green table". Which national park is located there?

From Quiz National Parks of the U.S.

Answer: Mesa Verde

Mesa Verde National Park was established in 1906. Modern Pueblo tribes in the Southwest consider themselves the descendants of the ancestral Puebloans who built their homes in the cliffs. In the canyons and on the top of the mesa, archaeologists have discovered more than 4,800 archaeological sites, including 600 cliff dwellings dating from 550 to 1300 A.D. No one really knows why these ancient people left the area, although some archaeologists think that warfare might have played a part.

9. In which state are these National Forests: Mount Baker - Snoqualmie, Gifford Pinchot, Olympic?

From Quiz A Nation Can't All Be Wrong

Answer: Washington

The common theme here is mountains. The Olympic mountains, and the Cascades. The Olympics are upthrust, the Cascades are volcanic. Mt. Baker erupted about 200 years ago. The Gifford Pinchot, one of the first National Forests, located between Mt. Rainier National Park and Mt. Saint Helens National Volcanic Monument, also includes the stratovolcano Mt. Adams.

10. Highway 34, the highest elevated numbered highway in the US at over 12,000 feet, runs through which national park?

From Quiz Roads to US National Parks

Answer: Rocky Mountain National Park

Highway 34 becomes the Trail Ridge Road past the Ranger's Station at Estes Park and crests at 12,183 ft just before the Continental Divide. There are higher roads in the US, but they are not numbered highways.

11. What is the "big bend" in the name of the park?

From Quiz Big Bend National Park

Answer: A bend in the Rio Grande River

The Rio Grande stretches nearly 2000 miles, from its origin in Colorado to its delta at the Gulf of Mexico. At Big Bend, it takes a large swing northward before again heading south - this defines the southwestern section of Texas. The river has several beautiful canyons within the park boundaries. There are several fault lines visible in the park, and enormous flying reptile fossils have been found there. Trees are not common in most sections of the park, so that answer is the least likely.

12. Dear mom, Today we were headed for California's Redwood Forest, but Tom read the map upside down and we ended up in Saguaro National Park. What state is that park in? Love, your silly Tilly

From Quiz Travels With Tom True

Answer: Arizona

Arizona, nicknamed 'The Grand Canyon State', has great swathes of desert terrain and large expanses of forested high country. The Coconino National Forest, Monument Valley, the Sonoran Desert, the Kaibab National Forest and Meteor Crater are just a few of the state's natural wonders that attract visitors each year. The Saguaro National Park is located near Tucson, and in addition to the cacti, despite the harsh desert climate, there is abundant flora and fauna to be seen. The saguaro cactus can live to 200 years, doesn't flower until it is 35 years old, and can grow to 50 feet tall. The saguaro blossom is Arizona's state flower.

13. Where is Acadia National Park located?

From Quiz Acadia National Park

Answer: Mount Desert Island, Maine

Mount Desert Island is the largest island off the coast of Maine. It is the sixth largest island in the continental United States.

14. When was the first national park in the United States established?

From Quiz The National Park Service

From Quiz National Parks: America's Best Idea

Answer: Shenandoah

The road follows a ridge in the Blue Ridge Mountains that goes nearly all the way through the park. The best time to visit Shenandoah is in the fall, when the leaves are changing color. After the creation of the park in 1935, the families living on the land were asked to leave their homes, as it had become federal property. Not surprisingly, many were upset and didn't want to leave their beautiful valley. The government let some of them stay after their property was acquired, until they died. The last Shenandoah resident died in 1979, at the age of 92.
