Laws & Policies
Lake Meredith National Recreation Area is governed by Codes of Federal Regulations
(CFR) and the park superintendent can "model" these regulations to fit the Park's
special needs. Not all parks have water-based recreation, historical structures, or even
trees. Each park is unique and has it's own unique set of laws, as well as the laws
that apply to every unit, such as "littering" for instance.
If the question you have in mind involves whether what you are doing is legal, or not, then
you can look in the Superintendent's Compendium to find your answer.
All laws and regulations are made to protect fragile natural and cultural resources,
and to protect our park visitors so the we, and our future generations may keep
coming back to enjoy the beauty we see around us.
