Laws & Policies
There are a variety of rules and regulations that help us protect park resources and provide visitors with a safe and enjoyable experience. The Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) and the Superintendent's Compendium provide a complete listing of park rules and regulations.
36 CFR parts 1-199 pertain to all National Park areas.
The Superintendent's Compendium is reviewed annually and provides a list of regulations under the discretionary authority of the superintendent.
Did You Know?
Ash from the May 1931 eruption of Aniakchak fell at a rate of a pound per hour at the Chignik villages, 65 miles to the south. The blast was heard 200 miles away and the ash sprinkled the ground nearly 700 miles from the source. The eruption left a caldera 250 deep and one-half mile wide.
