Why do boaters need to register for an overnight stay?

We ask overnight boaters to register in order for state parks to obtain accurate attendance counts as well as providing vital information in case of an emergency within the park where possible evacuation may be necessary and to provide information in case of an emergency where the boaters family or friends may need to contact them.
