Freedom Of Information Act
The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is a federal law that gives you the right to access any Voyageurs National Park, National Park Service (NPS), or Department of the Interior (DOI) records unless DOI resonably foresees that the release of the information in those records would harm an interest protected by one or more of the nine exemptions (reasons an agency may withhold records from a requester) or release is prohibited by law.
If you are seeking general information about Voyageurs National Park, you may wish to explore other pages of this website or feel free to contact the park.
The information you are seeking may already be on this site, at park visitor centers or found by simply calling (218) 283-6600 or you may email or write to the park for the information you request.
Public Affairs Officer
You may also submit FOIA requests to the National Park Service or the Department of Interior. If you have questions on what information is available without submitting a FOIA request or where it may be located contact one of the NPS FOIA Officers and Contacts or DOI FOIA Contacts. Our responsibility is to provide you with copies of the documents you are entitled to receive under the law. We want to work with you to achieve that goal.
What are the 9 exemptions?
The following are the 9 exemptions and the information they cover:
1. Classified national defense and foreign relations information.
Disclaimer: To the extent that anything included on this home page may be or could be construed as inconsistent with the law or DOI's regulations, the law and regulations will control DOI's responsibilities under the FOIA
