Doing Business With The Park

Commercial operations are prohibited from engaging in business within the park without a written permit, contract, or agreement. The exception to this rule is commercial transportation, to the park area, of passengers by motor vehicle such as commercial buses, for a direct or indirect fee with no services provided except for on-board interpretive services (these services are confined to the motor vehicle itself, and established roadways, pullouts and parking areas). All commercial use is prohibited within designated and recommended wilderness.

Below are a couple of ways to obtain permits allowing the use of the park for business or personal purposes.

Special Use Permits (SUP)

The Special Use Permit (SUP) authorizes activities that benefit an individual, group or organization, rather than the public at large. Examples include weddings, scattering ashes, commercial filming and/or photography, special assemblies, First Amendment activities, athletic events, or collecting of resource materials etc. Each of these activities requires a special use permit that must be acquired in advance. Learn more and how to apply for a SUP.

Commercial Use Authorization/Permits (CUA)

Commercial use includes any organization (commercial and non-profit) offering a service or itinerary that has been packaged, priced, and sold as guided instruction using National Park Service lands. Examples include (but are not limited to) workshops, shuttles, guided bike tours, guided hiking tours etc. Applications for commercial use must be submitted in advance and renewed yearly. Learn more and how to apply for a CAU.
