Enjoy this national park in the heart of the South Pacific!

Come explore them with us!

Located some 2,600 miles southwest of Hawai'i, this is one of the most remote national park's in the United States. You will not find the usual facilities of most national parks. Instead, with a bit of the explorer's spirit, you will discover secluded villages, rare plants and animals, coral sand beaches, and vistas of land and sea.

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.

The National Park of American Samoa's Visitor Guide (pdf format) includes additional trip planning information. You may also send us inquiries through email at, or reach us at (684) 633-7082, ext. 22.

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.
