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
- The Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) and the Superintendent's Compendium provide a complete listing of park rules and regulations. 36 CFR parts 1-199 pertain to all National Park areas.
- The Superintendent's Compendium is reviewed annually and provides a list of regulations under the discretionary authority of the superintendent.
A variety of management plans inform and direct the day-to-day decisions of park managers. Various plans, like the park's General Management Plan, Prairie Restoration Management Plan, and others, live on the park planning section of our website.
