Just How Big Is Wrangell-St. Elias National Park? Take A Look
Just how big is Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve? To give you an idea, check out the accompanying map. It shows how Wrangell-St. Elias would swallow a number of parks you might have considered to be large themselves.
If you could lift and move parks around, you could easily fit Yellowstone National Park (2.2 million acres), Shenandoah National Park (199,100 acres), Death Valley National Park (3.3 million acres), Everglades National Park (1.4 million acres), Isle Royale National Park (571,790 acres), and Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historical Park (19,622 acres), inside Wrangell-St. Elias, which sprawls across more than 13 million acres of Alaska when you consider both the national park and the national preserve.
So big is Wrangell-St. Elias that it would even swallow Switzerland!
