Dollywood, nestled in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains, is in Tennessee; so, all your Smokies belong to Tennessee!

Rocky Mountain

Wind Cave

Not a particularly impressive total, but I've visited each four times.
Does that improve my score?

It isn't the number of parks visited, it's the quality of the time spent there.

I read somewhere that the average length of stay at the Grand Canyon is 3 hours.
