Commercial Film Permits

The policy of National Park Service (NPS) is to allow commercial filming and photography when it is consistent with the protection and public enjoyment of park resources. NPS policy requires that primary consideration be given to safety, potential resource damage and anticipated disruption of normal visitor use.
To assure protection of the parks’ cultural, historic and natural resources, all commercial photography requests involving the use of NPS lands must be approved through a permitting process initiated through the Park Superintendent or his/her representative.

In 1950, William Nancarrow built the first National Park Service facilities in Katmai--a food cache, a well, and a tent frame cabin. The Brooks Camp Campground is located at this site today.
