The Adirondack Park is larger than any of the seven smallest states in the United States: Hawaii, Connecticut, New hampshire, Massachusetts, Delaware, Rhode Island, and New Jeersey.
It would take five national parks added together to equal the size of the Adirondack Park: Yellowstone, Grand Canyon, Yosemite, Everglades and Great Smoky National Parks.

The Adirondack Park is slightly larger than Denali National Park in Alaska.
