I realize this is based on just the area of the national park, but for New River Gorge it seems little disingenuous to separate it from New River Gorge National Preserve. They're under the same management, and the only real difference is whether hunting is allowed. And the combined area would put this park much higher up the list, above places like Acadia and Mesa Verde.

Yeah but that's like saying you could combine Indiana Dunes state park and national park
