Why do Major Locations not Appear in the Location Box?

Does anyone know why one can't put some major locations ( like National or State Parks primarily) in the location box for the stories? It seems to only accept cities.

Some do and some don't. I've been able to use Yellowstone National Park as a location and then other NPs I have to use the city in which the main entrance is located.

I was not able to figure this out either - trial and error

Interestingly, when you add details, it often allows you to tag the location that did not work in the main story. How's that possible? Islands seem to be a problem but so are National Parks no matter what size...just makes it sometimes very time consuming to actually find a possible location that relates to the story. Google map is always there in a second.

I've noticed this most with my international postings. I enjoy hiking and want to post about small towns I see, but they almost never show up even though they are commonly visited places. I usually have to tag the province they are in or a nearby city.
