Code of Federal Regulations, Title 36 - Parks, Forests, and Public Property, Chapter 1 - National Park Service, Department of the Interior, Part 2—Resource Protection, Public Use and Recreation:

36 CFR 2.17 - Aircraft And Air Delivery

2.17 Aircraft and air delivery.

2006 NPS Management Policies: Parachuting
Parachuting (or BASE jumping), whether from an aircraft, structure, or natural feature, is generally prohibited by 36 CFR 2.17(a)(3). However, if determined through a park planning process to be an appropriate activity, it may be allowed pursuant to the terms and conditions of a permit.

Which supersedes the old policy, from 2001 NPS Management Policies: BASE Jumping
BASE (Buildings, Antennae, Spans, Earth forms) jumping — also known as fixed object jumping — involves an individual wearing a parachute jumping from buildings, antennae, spans (bridges), and earth forms (cliffs). This is not an appropriate public use activity within national park areas, and is prohibited by 36 CFR 2.17(3).
