Scattering Cremated Remains
Bryce Canyon National Park does allow the scattering of cremated human remains within the park. This activity requires a Special Use Permit.
Please complete the Application for Permit to Scatter Cremation Ashes. There is no fee for this permit but the permittee and any members accompanying the permittee into the park will be charged general admission to Bryce Canyon National Park (Current Fee Structure available here.), unless an annual or other pass is used (Golden Age, Golden Access, Interagency Annual America the Beautiful Pass, etc.)
Conditions of Permit:
You may mail or fax the permit application to the Special Use Permits Coordinator. It will take two to four weeks to obtain a permit. Once a permit is generated, it will be sent to you for signature. Once you sign and return the permit to us, it will be signed by an authorized park representative and only then will it be valid. The completed permit will be returned for your use and you will present it at the entrance station.
Any questions regarding this application can be directed to:
