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. Permits will be specific in nature to the activity being permitted. Activities requiring a Special Use Permit may include First Amendment gatherings, weddings, or sale or distribution of printed matter.
