Laws & Policies

Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park's enabling legislation is the starting point for understanding the purpose of the park. Any National Park Service unit's enabling legislation outlines the specific reason(s) why Congress designated the place a national park, monument, site, preserve, or historical park.



There are a variety of rules and regulations that dictate how the park must be managed. These regulations help us protect park resources while also providing visitors with a safe and enjoyable experience.

  • Firearm Information
  • Superintendent's Compendiums
  • Hunting and Gathering Policies
  • Marijuana and Other Controlled Substances - Possession or use inside a National Park Service unit (for example parks, preserves, and monuments) is prohibited. While the State of Alaska provides for regulated possession and use of marijuana, it remains an illegal drug under federal law, which will be enforced within Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park.

Management Plans

A variety of management plans inform and direct the day-to-day decisions of park managers.
