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.
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.
