Special Use Permits
Special Use Permits
National Parks often require Special Use Permits to ensure the protection of natural and cultural resources, as well as to minimize conflicts between park visitors and other park users.
A Special Use Permit may be required for activities such as:
If you are not familiar with Pecos National Historical Park, a preliminary visit is advisable. The location where the event is to take place needs to be determined before a permit is issued. There may be special restrictions in the area that could limit access.
Filming permits are issued on an individual basis based on the size of the project (movie, commercial, etc.), how much staff is needed for supervision, and how much time will be involved. Additional fees may be required depending on the situation.
Incidental Business Permit
Any individual or business leading commercial tours or other commercial enterprises within the park needs to first have an Incidental Business Permit.
Application for Special Use Permits
Available forms (click on above links) may be printed out, completed and mailed to the park along with appropriate application fees. At this time they are not available to fill out online.
