Like the customer that gave a 1-star review because a bakery wouldn’t serve them before opening hours or the customer that gave a 1-star review because a carbon monoxide detector kept beeping, some people just don’t get it. You can’t please everyone but sometimes complaints go a little too far, even for our beloved National Parks! But rather than just create a list of these hilarious complaints, Amber Share’s Instagram channel, subparparks, has created a collection of art contrasting these 1-star reviews against illustrations of the parks.

You may find yourself looking through the channel for hours now…. but here are a few of our favorites.

Have to say, I kinda like the gray rock… and the trees.

Shenandoah National Park

Hike?! An approach to nowhere? Thanks for the review. Almost wasted a vacation on that one.

Mount Rainier National Park 1-star review

I definitely need to remember this one the next time someone shows me a picture of their project.
