Permits & Reservations


Special park uses such as recreational activities, filming, and still photography may require a Special Use Permit. Please refer to the current Superintendent's Compendium on the page below for a complete list of activities and areas.

A non refundable processing fee of $150.00 must accompany the application.

Your permit may require the payment of cost recovery charges and/or proof of liability insurance. Frist amendment activities do not require an application of fee but may be limited to specific areas.
