Special Park Use Permits
Activities that may affect park operations or the experience of visitors require a permit. Some activities that require permits include, but are not limited to:
First Amendment Activities (Demonstrations & Literature Distribution)
Weddings and Parties
Commercial Activities (Professional Photography, Road Service, Bus Tours, etc.)
Applications for permit activities are linked below. All applications, except for First Amendment activities, require a fifty dollar, non-refundable fee that does not guarantee permit approval.
The cost of a permit is calculated to recover personnel and resource management costs associated with the activity. Commercial filming permits also require the payment of a location fee (see the table below).
