Special Use Permits (SUP) are required for all uses and/or activities considered non-traditional i.e., not a customary visit or not related to the legislatively mandated purpose of the park. Requests for Special Use Permits for such uses and/or activities must be made in writing to the Superintendent at least three working days in advance to allow time for review, permit preparation, and scheduling.

Fees for Special Use Permits, when applicable, must be paid before the special use, event, assembly, or meeting. Requests may be denied due to the lack of sufficient time to process the request or to protect the park resources.
