Fire Island National Seashore's policy is to accommodate requests for special use permits when and where possible. However, the primary consideration must be given to potential resource damage and to anticipated disruption of normal public use.
Fire Island National Seashore issues permits for the following activities. Additional permits from other agencies are required for some actions.
There is an application fee associated with most permits, and additional administrative costs are recovered for some activities.
Individuals and small groups are no longer required by the National Park Service to obtain a permit for First Amendment activities, but special areas are set aside for these purposes. (See Public Gatherings/Special Events.)
