This beautiful, pristine, untouched, paleotropical rain-forest National Park is unlike any other US NPS site that you may visit. It is the only NPS site south of the equator, and as the NPS brochure states, "You will not find the usual facilities of most national...More

Stopped in America Samoa as part of a cruise. After our excursion we decided to walk to the National Park visitors center. The sign said 3/4 of a mile, sure seemed a lot further going there, but coming back it seemed shorter. Go figure. If...More

A stop on a tour of American Samoa. Great view of Pago Pago from above. Tropical rain forest environment. Hikes for those who have more time and want to explore the Park.

Driving through the National Park of American Samoa afforded me a great view of Pago Pago, and also it was my first time to see tropicbirds soar!

I went to American Samoa specifically to hike the park and it didn’t disappoint. It is large, lush and varied. The only downside at present is the Mt. Alava trail is partially closed due to storm damage so I couldn’t hike all the way across....More

I believe this is my 29th or 30th national park and I had a great time at it! The rangers at the visitor center are awesome at giving help and directions.

The park is pristine and breathtaking. However, it definitely needs government engineering help to build the hiking trail towards the water for people to enjoy the hike at the same time learn about the wild exotic plants and other inhabitants along the way.

Our expectations of the National Park were not high - there just wasn't a lot of research online. Once we arrived, we fell in love. It is rustic and primitive - solitude is easy to find. Beauty is around every corner. Paradise. The people of...More

The only U. S. Park South of the equator. It is amazingly beautiful but pretty rustic with unimproved roads in some places. An easy must see while on American Samoa.

In addition to the previous response - yes, you can get the stamp and map at the visitor center. We had a rental car so I am not sure how you could get to the actual park itself. Maybe one of the little buses that traverse... More
