The Rapid Assessment and Prioritization of Protected Area Management (RAPPAM) is widely used for geopark management effectiveness evaluation. This paper takes Danxia Mountain Global Geopark of Guangdong Province as the research object and adopts the RAPPAM method to evaluate specifically seven aspects, including landscape protection, stakeholders, biodiversity, cultural heritage protection, tourists management and information, interpretation and popularization and human resources. The results showed that: 1) the Danxia Mountain Geopark was good overall, especially in the three aspects of infrastructure, transportation and publicity, and the less desirable aspects were human resources and landscape protection, with a score of less than 3 points; 2) The items with the highest scores were tourists management and information, explanation and science popularization, indicating that Danxia Mountain is the strength of Danxia Mountain Geopark in terms of tourists management, transportation, infrastructure, publicity and science popularization; 3) The human resources component scored low, between 2–3 points, indicating the need for greater investment in this area. From the actual situation, tour guides need more training to enhance their operational capabilities, and in terms of salary, they also need to improve their remuneration according to the needs of the market. The study can accurately and effectively make management suggestions to the managers of Danxia Mountain Global Geopark, so as to help the managers improve their management measures.
