Our Superintendent's Compendium is a list of policies and regulations that are specific to Lava Beds National Monument. Demonstrations and the Sale or Distribution of Printed Matter area as permitted under 36 CFR 2.51 and 2.52, map of the designated location is included at the end of the compendium.



As of February 22, 2010, a new federal law allows people who can legally possess firearms under applicable federal, state, and local laws, to legally possess firearms at Lava Beds.

It is the responsibility of visitors to understand and comply with all applicable state, local, and federal firearms laws before entering Lava Beds. As a starting point, please visit the State of California's Bureau of Firearms website.

Federal law also prohibits firearms in certain facilities within Lava Beds; those places, such as the Visitor Center, are marked with signs at all public entrances.
