Draft South Denali Implementation Plan and EIS

This South Denali Implementation Plan and Environmental Impact Statement provides specific direction for expanded visitor facilities and recreational opportunities in the south Denali region until 2020. Proposed actions are guided by established laws and policies that affect the National Park Service, State of Alaska, and Matanuska-Susitna Borough. Alternatives focus on variations in location and extent of new visitor opportunities and facilities. Actions described by this plan should provide a quality visitor experience while protecting resource values in Denali State Park; enhance recreational and access opportunities throughout the south Denali region for the benefit of a wide variety of visitors including Alaskans, independent travelers, and package tour travelers; and preserve the quality of life for residents in nearby communities.
