Permits & Reservations


Commercial activities, or non-traditional activities like special filming, weddings, large First Amendment demonstrations, or certain kinds of filming on park grounds often require special arrangements and a permit, which park management will consider before granting. Additional fees for cost recovery may apply. To inquire about obtaining a permit please call the park at 434-352-8987 or email us.

Do I need a permit to film?

The National Park Service is not distinguishing between types of filming, such as commercial, non-commercial, or news gathering. Low-impact filming activities will not require a special use permit, but non-low-impact filming activities may require a permit to address their potential impacts on park resources and visitor activities. See the main National Park Service page for Filming and Still Photography Permits for more clarification.
