The National Park Service has updated park compendiums. A compendium – one for each NPS area in Alaska – is a compilation of designations, closures and restrictions adopted under the discretionary authority within the regulations covering national parks. This regulatory tool helps manage Alaska's national park areas for the public’s enjoyment, use and protection.

Some of the changes include:

  • Allowing e-bikes on roads and trails that are also open to traditional bikes
  • Denali National Park has changed the hours generators may be operated in the Riley Creek, Savage River, and Teklanika River campgrounds.
  • Glacier Bay National Park has adopted changes related to the use of the Bartlett Cove dock.
  • Lake Clark National Park is requiring bear resistant electric fencing when camping between May 1 and November 1 on national park lands along the Cook Inlet coast.
  • Katmai National Park has adopted changes that allow park managers flexibility to adjust restrictions, closures, and public use conditions at Brooks Camp as needed based on current wildlife, environmental, or public use conditions.
  • Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park has adopted changes related to use of the Dyea Campground and requiring registration for overnight use of the Chilkoot trail during the shoulder seasons.

The compendium for each park can be viewed at
