General Management Plans


A General Management Plan is a strategic planning document that outlines the future management of a National Park Service site for the next 15 to 20 years. The plan will set the basic philosophy and broad guidance for management decisions that affect the park's resources and the visitor's experience.

General Management Plan Amendment

The National Park Service (NPS) has prepared a General Management Plan Amendment (GMP Amendment) and Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for Point Reyes National Seashore and the north district of Golden Gate National Recreation Area. The GMP Amendment/EIS updates management guidance for more than 28,000 acres of NPS lands, including all lands currently leased for ranching. On Monday, September 13, 2021, the National Park Service issued the record of decision (ROD).
