This tab provides access to detailed information pertaining to towns, settlements, and camps derived from historical and archaeological research. Access to some of the information requires login. The information about settlements and camps that are no longer occupied is access protected. Archaeological sites are, by default, protected under the law; accordingly, location information and any documents with location information are accessible only to researchers with access granted by the National Park Service.
A note about type classification: Camps are defined as temporary group habitations with no structures intended to be permanent. Settlements are typically larger and have more substantial structures intended to be permanent. They are often seasonal. They may have businesses; however, they generally have no schools, post offices, or other institutions indicative of permanence. Villages are generally not seasonal and typically have a post office and a school. They do not have a town-hall or other formal, organized form of self-governance. They often depend on nearby towns and cities for goods, services, and income. Towns have a formal, organized form of self-governance, but are typically unincorporated. They typically have one post office. Cities are incorporated and typically have multiple post offices and schools.
