The National Park Service prepares a variety of planning and environmental impact documents to help guide the management of park resources. These documents can range from site-specific impact analyses on facility locations to broader park-wide plans for future use and management.
Public Comment and Review
Current park planning documents are made available for public review via the National Park Service Planning, Environment and Public Comment (PEPC) website. PEPC is an online collaborative tool dedicated to facilitating the NEPA/NHPA process in conservation planning, environmental impact analysis and informed decision-making. PEPC allows parks to improve efficiency and implement agency guidelines.

The park's General Management Plan was written in 2011. This plan guides the management of resources, visitor use, and general development in the park. The primary purpose of the plan is to provide a foundation from which to protect park resources while providing for meaningful visitor experiences.
In 2013, the park developed a Foundation Statement to update a shared understanding of the park's purpose, significance, resources and values. This document can serve as a foundation for future planning and management decisions.
