Welcome to the Community!

If you’re a fan of national parks, you’ve come to the right place. Heck, if you’ve got even a fleeting curiosity about national parks, you’ve come to the right place. It doesn’t matter if you’re an ardent backpacker, a casual day-tripper, a glamper, or a full-time RVer, national parks are for everyone, and Hello Ranger is here to celebrate you all.

Hello Ranger is a national parks community social application, podcast, and blog, with “community” being the key word. Our goal is to showcase and support the communities that are connected through national parks, from families and van-lifers to retirees, artists, educators, diverse groups, and those with disabilities. National parks are the rare places where we can all find common ground, and become #UnitedByNature.

As a community, we strive to highlight what makes us all unique as individuals experiencing these magnificent places, but it’s also important to spotlight how they bring us together. We do so with our national parks travel podcast and our crew of ambassadors, representing different regions, diversities, and lifestyles through stories and experiences, and we expand upon this ethos with our social community app (due late-2020), which brings the national parks community into the palm of your hand.

Join us!

Hello Ranger Happy Hour: Disney+ and Chill

Like the rest of America, we’ve been watching a LOT of Netflix these past few months. And Hulu. And HBO. And Disney+. If we’re gonna be quarantined in our 26-foot RV, we need options. For this happy hour, we’re talking about some of our favorite bingeable shows, from Veep and Big Little Lies to Taste the Nation and Dead to Me.

These Dog-Friendly National Parks Get Two Paws Up

While not all national parks are very dog-friendly, for their own valid reasons, there are plenty of parks where I’ve been able to get outside and hike my heart out—at least until I get exhausted from over-excitement, and then my dads will need to carry me. These are some of my very favorite dog-friendly national parks I’ve explored so far, and where you should take your bark rangers, too!
