Permits are required for all river trips within Dinosaur National Monument. Permits are issued for multiday and single day trips. Play permits are issued for the Green River upstream of the Gates of Lodore boat ramp and downstream of the Split Mountain boat ramp. Boating permits are limited to protect the monument's natural and cultural resources and leave the river canyons unimpaired for future boaters. Multiday trip permits and single-day permits are issued through a lottery process. Private boaters with qualifying experience can apply for a permit. Permit applications, also called lottery applications, are available below.
