Wrangell-St. Elias National Park & Preserve » 2023 Changes to WRST Superintendent's Compendium » Document List

This project addresses the 2023 proposed changes to the Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve (WRST) Superintendent's Compendium (see attached).

The Superintendent's Compendium is the summary of park specific rules implemented under the discretionary authority of the park Superintendent. The park compendium is updated annually and is a written compilation that addresses designations, closures, permit requirements, and other restrictions and/or specifications imposed under the discretionary authority of the superintendent. The Superintendent's Compendium is prepared in accordance with the delegated authority contained within the regulations in Title 36, Code of Federal Regulations, Chapter I, Parts 1 through 7, as authorized by Title 54, United States Code, Section 100101 and 100751, and establishes regulatory provisions for Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve. Parts 1 through 6 are general regulations applicable to all areas of the National Park System, and Part 13 contains special regulations specific to individual parks in Alaska.

A public comment period regarding proposed changes to the compendium will be open from January 21, 2023 - February 19, 2023. Information on how to submit comments is available at:

After review and consideration of the need for annual updates, the following changes are proposed for 2023: Instituting a camping restriction at the Slana Ranger Station and rescinding interim language regarding commercial filming.

The final compendium document along with the response to comments received on the Superintendent's Compendium for 2023 will be attached to this PEPC project in the files section below.
