Who We Are

Great Smoky Mountains National Park – Tennessee

Family Owned

ExplorUS is a family-owned company with almost 30 years of experience operating National, State, and local park concessions. Over the years we have worked to enhance, elevate, and complement the visitor’s experience at each park, landmark, and property we operate.

We focus on finding small to medium-sized park operations where we can make a large difference. We take great pride in acquiring underperforming park concessions, turning them around, and bringing them up to and beyond the expectations of our park partners and park visitors.


Muir Woods National Monument – California

We strive to create grand adventures for our guests while reducing the impact on local ecosystems. We are committed to preserving and protecting the unique environments and precious resources where we operate, allowing our guests and future generations to experience the beauty, serenity, and splendor of these parks.

At our core, we are park concessionaires that focus on lodging, camping, retail, food service, and outdoor experiences. Our success in this industry is tied to the simple belief that we do not consider park concessions to be just another business. We are stewards of the natural, historic, and cultural resources of the parks in which we work and are committed to providing a level of hospitality that honors those resources.
