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.
36 CFR part 13 pertains to all Alaska National Park areas.
The Superintendent's Compendium is reviewed annually and provides a list of regulations under the discretionary authority of the superintendent.
A variety of management plans inform and direct the decisions of park managers. Various plans, like Denali's General Management Plan, Backcountry Management Plan, and others, live on the park planning section of our website.
Did You Know?
Did you know that Denali National Park and Preserve is home to both black bears and grizzly (brown) bears? Black bears inhabit the forested areas of the park, while grizzly bears mainly live on the open tundra. Almost all bears seen by visitors along the Park Road are grizzlies.
