Doing Business With The Park
Special Use Permits
Special Use Permits are required for certain activities conducted in the park, such as weddings, ceremonies, and other non-traditional park activities. Due to recent changes in regulations, all organized groups, including educational and non-profit organizations, may be required to obtain a Special Use Permit. These permits are also required of any group of 40 or more participants hiking in the Chisos Mountains.
Requests for Special Use Permits may be made by writing the Superintendent or calling the park (432-477-2802) to initiate the process. Please allow a minimum of 4 weeks for permit preparation, review, and approval. A non-refundable administrative application fee of $25.00 may be charged, depending on the activity.
