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 and the Superintendent's Compendium provide a complete listing of park rules and regulations.
The current Superintendent's Compendium provides a listing of regulations under the discretionary authority of the superintendent. Each year the compendium is updated and the public can make comments. This is the where current park closures are announced.
