Over 95% of the park is managed as wilderness. Although some trails and locations are closed to backcountry camping (for example, there is no camping in the summer with a view of the lake), exploring the park’s old-growth forests and volcanic landscapes can be a rewarding experience.
Please visit our Current Conditions page to find out the current status of the facilities below. Following guidance from the CDC and other public health authorities, some facilities may be closed. This webpage is not being updated to reflect current conditions.
Backcountry Camping Permits
A backcountry camping permit is required year-round for all overnight trips in the park. Permits are not required for day hiking; however, day hikers must observe all backcountry regulations.
