Doing Business With The Preserve
Providing Commercial Visitor Services
Larger visitor service operations are provided under concession contracts. Smaller, single-service businesses are issued commercial use authorization, if certain requirements are met.
Note: If you are a nonprofit organization without taxable income, under the new National Park Service guidelines you are not required to obtain a commercial use authorization. However, you are required to obtain a special use permit.

Many do not expect to see bears in Florida. Actually, we have a healthy population within the state. Big Cypress is one of their ideal habitats in Southwest Florida. If camping in the area, be sure to keep your camp "bear proof."
