Special Use Permits
A special use permit (SUP) is required for activities within National Parks that benefit an individual, group, or organization rather than the public at large. This is to protect the park resources and public interests, as well as reduce the potential for conflict between your group and park guests.
Such activities include, but are not limited to:
Commercial Use Authorization
Commercial Use Authorization permits are required of all operators who provide any goods, activities, agreements, or other services to the general public which take place, at least in part, in the park, uses park resources and are undertaken for or results in compensation, monetary gain, benefit or profit to an individual, organization or corporation. (This also applies to non-profit and educational groups, if taxable income is derived).
