The NPS is proposing to create a parking reservation system that would support management of visitation to levels that meet park goals for safety, natural resource preservation, visitor experience, and public access. The reservation system is intended to be a long-term measure that will allow the park to work with visitors in advance of their arrival so that congestion, and its related impacts, can be minimized and the quality of the experience enhanced. NPS anticipates that the system would operate year-round and reservations would be made through a website, a call center, on site for less busy days, and possibly at other locations. Implementation of the reservation system would use existing park and county infrastructure; no new construction is being proposed.

Public Scoping was initiated on Wednesday, September 4 and the first public meeting for this project was held on September 18, 2013. A second informational meeting was originally scheduled for Wednesday, November 20, however, due to the extension of the federal government shutdown and the subsequent extension of the due date for comments this meeting has been cancelled and will be rescheduled for sometime in early 2014.
