Doing Business With The Park

Gatherings and commercial activities in national parks often require a special use permit. The purpose of these permits is to ensure the protection of the park’s natural and cultural resources, as well as to minimize conflicts between park visitors and your guests.

Examples of permitted activities include:

  • Commercial filming and photography
  • First Amendment events
  • Weddings (and similar gatherings)

Some of the activities may incur a fee.

If you are not sure whether your event requires a permit or you have other questions, contact the park at (575) 278-2201 or email us.
