Any applications received that include “special request” activities which will require additional staff time or necessitate a Ranger’s presence will incur an additional per-hour charge which will be added to the appropriate fee above.
*Please note: If we determine the need to restore the site of your event the cost to the Permittee for leaving trash in the park and any NPS post event clean-up is calculated at $39.00 per hour per NPS employee for a minimum of four hours. These charges are billed without notice.
Permit required and must be applied for at least 4 weeks in advance of the event. However, if you wish to reserve one of the shelters at Osceola Landing and Picnic Area, please plan well in advance as dates fill up fast.
