Bear Management Plan: The objectives of the Katmai bear management program are to retain the natural population dynamics of bears, allow their natural patterns of feeding and habitat use to continue, preclude a learned orientation of bears toward people, minimize bear-human conflicts, and provide opportunities for humans to learn about, observe, and appreciate bears.

Fire Management Plan: Provides direction for wildland fire management.

Foundation Statement: The Foundation Statement describes the unit’s purpose, significance, fundamental resources and values, primary interpretive themes, and special mandates.

General Management Plan: Comprehensive park plan that guides the long-term management of resources, visitor use, and general development at the park.

Long-Range Interpretive Plan: Long-Range Interpretive Plans (LRIPs) provide a vision for the future (5-10 years) of interpretation, education, and visitor experience opportunities.

Strategic Plan: A short term (5 years or less) park plan that guides the long-term management of resources, visitor use, and general development at the park.
