Film Permits

Commercial film and production companies that plan to film on park grounds are required to obtain a Film Permit. Permits are also required when:

  • filming will take place requiring special access to buildings and sites
  • filming in areas not open to the general public
  • filming outside of the regular posted park hours
  • when props or special effects are needed
These are provided on an individual basis and there is a $50.00 non-refundable application processing fee per permit. The cost of location and monitoring fees depend on the size and complexity of the project. For further information, call Grace Reese at (717) 334-1124 x4421 or visit the NPS Digest on Commercial Filming and Still Photography Permits. Individuals with a private camera for home use are not required to have a Film Permit.
