Anyone who has ever traveled knows there's a big difference between spending the day at Six Flags versus spending the weekend camping at a national park. Unfortunately, some people visited some of the country's most popular national park reserves and felt pretty unimpressed.
And what do you do when you have a bad experience somewhere other people want to go? Write a one-star review on Yelp, of course! Check out these equal parts hilarious and head-scratching REAL reviews, complete with some (yawn) panoramic views.

Carlsbad Caverns National Park, New Mexico

Crater Lake National Park, Oregon

Denali National Park and Preserve, Arkansas

So what do you guys think? Are these reviewers just honest or completely missing the point?

As fun as it is to make fun of them from the safety of my own apartment, part of me is thinking I'd probably be the same way. Nature's cool in pictures, but if the Grand Canyon doesn't have Wi-Fi and immediate access to food or coffee, I'll be bored after 5 minutes. (I blame this on being raised in a generation of technology and malls.)

Yeah, I think they are kinda missing the point. They say it's all about personal perspective, judging from this I agree. I have never been to, but would love to see, these places.

deffinetly missing the point on this one. How can you get mad cuz they closed a trail because of bears....it's freakin Bears!! And the one who complain about the water being blue clearly needs to stay indoors if she can't appreciate that one simple fact...馃槕

Agreed @BluBear07 do they think this is Yogi Bear we are talking about here. At the fear of sounding slightly biased...some people just need to stay in the city...don't get me wrong. People from the city can enjoy nature as well as country folk, but enjoy it for exactly what it is...100% God-given beauty. Respect the awe of it all.

I would like to add that I think that when they go into the big city they also need to appreciate the beauty and work that went into constructing the beautiful buildings there as well. I guess what I'm trying to say ( but not doing a very good job of it) is, just take a minute to enjoy the beauty in everything around you.

Despite my amusement at the comments, there does seem to be a rather disturbing upswing in "nature haters" that seem to be "oddly obssessed" with convincing the general public away from wildlands... (Could it be Disney's 'soon-TBA' chain of 'nature lodges' - unfortunately Harley Davidson is w/ them on this). They've promised the Forest Service (one of the most underfunded agencies) that they'll help re-outfit the Ranger stations if they help them make it happen. Legally, they can't do anything, so they're probably trying to 'starve out' the USFS so they can make a better case for it in Washington DC (would be my guess)
