Capitol Reef National Park Special Use Permits
The Special Use Permit (SUP) authorizes activities that benefit an individual, group or organization, rather than the public at large: and that require written authorization and management control in order to protect park resources and the public interest. Examples include: weddings, memorializations, commercial filming and/or photography, special assemblies, First Amendment activities, athletic events, firearms, or collecting resource materials require a special use permit be acquired in advance.
Please contact the park at (435) 425-4130 well in advance of your activity and/or event.
Any commercial activity, other than commercial filming and/or photography, requires a Commercial Use Authorization (CUA).
Did You Know?
Mule Deer lack the digestive juices of omnivores or carnivores, and rely on enzymes present in green plant material to digest their food. Feeding deer picnic fare causes hyper-enlargement of their pancreas, and can result in death. Please do not feed wildlife!
