Katahdin and Baxter State Park have been popular media subjects since the Park was first created. Today we field at least one interview or inquiry for photos in any given week and at least one film feature or book project per year requiring special attention. By articulating our expectations and goals as an agency when working with media contacts, we hope to lend more predictability to the process for both the Park and the media representatives. It is our belief that the Park embodies many qualities and values that are worthwhile to share with the public at large and this policy seeks to allow a mutually beneficial way to allow this exchange of information to happen.

Please review our Media Policy (Get Adobe Reader .8MB) and Media Permit Application (Get Adobe Reader .2MB) for specific requirements regarding media activities in the Park.
