Special Park Uses

The Special Use Permit (SUP) program authorizes activities that provide benefit to an individual, group or organization, rather than the public at large; and that require written authorization and some management control in order to protect park resources and the public interest. Examples include special events, commercial filming/still photography, weddings, scattering of ashes, First Amendment activities, commercial vehicle or watercraft use, agricultural permits and right-of-way (ROW) easements.

Special Use Permits are granted for specific periods of time and specific locations. Certain cost recovery, fees and insurance requirements may apply.

Permit Application Procedure
Requests for a permit application, park specific conditions, or additional information may be made in person at park headquarters, via telephone, email or letter. A completed application and the non-refundable application fee are required before an application can be processed. Park information is:
