Delaware Water Gap News Release

NPS Announces Updated Regulations
BUSHKILL, PA- Where can I go camping? Where can I park my car for an overnight backpacking trip? Am I allowed to have a campfire? Do I need a permit to hold an event in the park? Which park trails allow bicycles? Where can I go with my dog?

All these questions, and more, are answered in the recently updated Superintendent’s Compendium of Designations, Closures, Permit Requirements, and Other Restrictions for Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area and the Middle Delaware National Scenic and Recreational River. “Very little has changed from the previous version of the Compendium, however the 2020 version includes updates on area closures and expands the size of the area in which firewood can be collected at designated river and group campsites,” said Chief Ranger Eric Lisnik.

“The Compendium is a good place to start when planning a trip to the park,” he added. “Knowing what is allowed and where you can go to do certain activities is an important part of planning a safe and fun national park visit.”

The Superintendent's Compendium addresses park-specific issues and regulations at the local level using federal authority granted to superintendents in Title 36 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Parts 1 through 7. The CFR is a codification of the general and permanent rules published in the Federal Register by the executive departments and agencies of the federal government, including the National Park Service. The CFR is available electronically at Under 36 CFR 1.7(b), superintendents are required to “compile in writing all the designations, closures, permit requirements, and other restrictions imposed under discretionary authority. This compilation shall be updated annually and made available to the public upon request." The Superintendent’s Compendium for Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area and Middle Delaware National Scenic and Recreational River is available on the park website and can be found at:

For those without internet access, hard copies are available by calling the superintendent’s office at (570) 426-2418.
