Special use permits are required for any activity that provides a benefit to an individual group or organization rather than the public at large. A permit is also required for an activity not initiated, sponsored, nor conducted by the National Park Service that is disruptive or potentially disruptive to normal park operations.
A $50 non-refundable application fee must be submitted with the application form for the application to be considered. If the permit is approved and issued, additional fees may be charged to recover costs incurred by the National Park Service for administering the permitted activity.
If you are unsure if the activity you have planned requires a special use permit please call 724-329-8131.
