With the steady onset of the summer season in the United States, many people plan to visit National Parks. However, there is a good chance that these parks may be crowded during the peak season, which is why it is ideal to plan your trip many months ahead and make reservations to avoid any hassle. Anna–who goes by @annabrooksk on TikTok–shared a video highlighting why people needed to plan in advance. Her video has garnered 964K views and 1287 comments on the platform.

Anna follows the style of a skit in her video and begins by imitating a visitor and an employee at the park. As the park visitor, she states, "OK, I have my park pass. I paid $80 for it. May I please go into the national park?" The employee responds, "Of course, welcome to Glacier." The visitor drives for a bit before being halted by another employee at a different place. She inquires why she is being stopped despite paying. The employee then clarified to her that she needed to make a vehicle reservation nine months back.

Anna replies, "Well, I planned my trip eight months ago, so what do I do?" The employee redirects her to one of the park's other entrances, where she will not need a vehicle reservation. However, two locations are far away and the third one is in Canada. It is clearly not practical for a visitor to make such a drive and the employee suggests they can enter the park before 6:00 am or after 3:00 pm. 

It meant that the visitor could not sleep or they would not get a parking space anywhere because the parking space was full. In a state of helplessness, the visitor inquires, "Is there any other way that I can just go into the park?" The park employee mentions that the visitor can rent a boat from very specific points to bypass the need for a reservation. But the boats were all sold out six months ago, so that is not a solution. 

The park worker suggests another workaround by saying, "You can log in to the website at 6:59 pm. Just kidding, you actually have to log in at like 6:30 to make an account and then pray and hope that you get a reservation for tomorrow." Looking quite concerned, the visitor inquires, "And if that still doesn't work?" The final option for the visitor is to go into the one park area that does not require reservation and "torture all of the employees that work there" because they did not bother to research.

Anna wrote in the caption, "I know it's annoying, but please research and don't take it out on minimum-wage employees." People shared their thoughts about the National Parks booking problem in the comment section. @witchvibes98 said, "I miss going to national parks to camp and hardly seeing anyone. I'm glad the NPS is making money, but it feels like parks are becoming less and less accessible." @digitalhag suggested, "Plan your trips accordingly. Everyone has a search engine at their fingertips. It makes the trip better and makes it easier on the employees."
