Individual states have control over a lot of public land, but the kinds of things you are listing all come under the Department of the Interior. The Interior Department administers all National Parks and National Monuments, National Forests, and National Historic Sites. The Bureau of Land Management or BLM is also under the Department of the Interior and owns and administers a huge amount of land in the western states and in Alaska. (The main difference between BLM land and national parkland is that BLM land can be used for various purposes other than conservation.) The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is also under the Department of the Interior and administers certain wildlife refuges and recreation areas (mostly seashores, swampland, and other sites on or in the water).
The Department of Agriculture is more concerned with nutrition, food production, and agricultural output and conditions in the United States. It is worried about these things mostly on private farms; DoAg administers very little land itself.

States also own public land, as do cities, counties and about any other level of government.
