The Coal Oil Point Reserve staff and an ad hoc committee developed the first management plan to guide the reserve's action and policies in 2004. Most actions proposed in the 2004 plan have been implemented. The plan was revised in 2015. These plans describe the reserve's general goals and actions. Specific programs are described in detail (Access Plan, Restoration Plan, Snowy Plover Conservation Plan, and Infrastructure Plan).
