Fees & Passes

No fees or registration are required to enter the park; however visitors are requested to stop at one of the park's visitor centers to attend a backcountry orientation. During an orientation you can get valuable information about current weather, fire and wildlife alerts, backcountry safety, bear safety and Leave No Trace camping techniques.

Every visitor center has Bear Resistant Food Containers to loan out to backcountry visitors.

If you are traveling in a group (i.e. nonprofit, educational, commercial, guided, etc.) please contact the park several months before your travel dates for permit requirements and group size limits.

NOTE: Commercial transporters are required to ensure that all of their clients get the opportunity to receive a backcountry orientation from park rangers prior to entering the park and preserve. Please take a moment to complete our voluntary registration form prior to your trip into the backcountry.
