Top Ten U.S. National Parks

4. Yellowstone, Wyoming

Score: 4.13

The famous crowds almost tossed Yellowstone out of the top five, with frustrated visitors rating them a lowly 2.88. But great scenery and lodging kept this national park granddaddy in contention with the nation's best. How do you beat the crowds? One reader recommends visiting geyser basins early in the morning. Good idea—that's also a great time to see wildlife.
