Doing Business in the Park
I run a bed and breakfast and want to bring my guests to the park. Do I need a special permit?
The law requires anyone doing business in a park area, including transporting paying guests on a tour, to have an Incidental Business Permit or a concessions contract.
I take still photos and sell them freelance to magazines - do I need a permit?
Most commercial photography, both still and motion pictures, requires a permit, due to the potential impact of crews, equipment, shooting schedules, etc. on resources and other visitors. A single photographer with a hand held camera and no props, models, or crew probably does not need a permit. Commercial photographers should check with the park for exact requirements prior to shooting.
Did You Know?
The Hoary Marmot is the largest member of the ground squirrels. These guys hibernate half or more of their life away. They have very thick fur and a substantial fat layer that protects them from the cold. You are not as likely to see them on hot days as they hide in the shade to keep cool.
