Once your forms are submitted properly, You should receive confirmation from us within about two to four weeks. A confirmation letter will be sent to you. This letter confirms the date, time, and park entrance necessary for your program.
Upon your arrival to the park, please bring your copy of the Fee Waiver to check in at the appropriate visitor center. The ranger on duty will issue a permit for each vehicle in your group.
