Enjoy this national park in the heart of the South Pacific!
Come explore them with us!
The national park includes sections of three islands—Tutuila, Ta'ū, and Ofu. Almost all of the land area of these volcanic islands—from the mountaintops to the coast—is tropical rainforest. About 4,000 acres of the national park is underwater, offshore from all three islands.
The national park headquarters and visitor center is open on weekdays from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm. Closed on weekends and federal holidays. Located in Pago Pago, across from the Pago Way Service Station. Park rangers are available throughout the day to help you plan a safe and memorable visit to the national park.

Talofa! (Hello!) The people of American Samoa and the National Park Service welcome you to the heart of the South Pacific, a world of sights, sounds, and experiences you will find in no other national park. The park preserves the only mixed-species paleotropical rainforest in the United States, habitat of fruit bats, and Indo-Pacific coral reefs. Also, in keeping with the meaning of the word Samoa--"sacred earth"--the park helps protect "fa'asamoa", the customs, beliefs, and traditions of the 3,000-year-old Samoan culture.
