Commercial Use Authorizations

The Commercial Use Authorization (CUA) program authorizes the provision of suitable commercial services to park area visitors, as long as three conditions are met: the services (a) will have minimal impact on the park area’s resources and values; (b) are consistent with the purposes for which the park area was established; and (c) are consistent with all applicable park area management plans, policies and regulations.

The Superintendent grants CUAs to businesses when there are no fixed commercial facilities within a national park area; the commercial activity originates and terminates outside the park; no money changes hands on park lands; and no commercial solicitation occurs on park lands.

CUA permits are available for the following activities:

  • Commercial Interpretive Services (limited trail use)
  • Bicycle Tours
  • Photography or Painting Workshops
  • Taxi and Recreational Shuttle Services
  • Motorcycle Tours

A business wishing to do any of these activities must procure a CUA in advance and follow the terms and conditions of the authorization. A Zion CUA is valid for one calendar year. Various liability insurance and first aid requirements must be met in order to receive a permit. Further information and application materials are available in
