Special Use Permits


Special Park Use Permits are required for short-term activities that take place in the park area which provide a benefit to an individual, group or organization, rather than the public at large; require written authorization and some degree of management control from the NPS in order to protect park resources and the public interest; and are not prohibited by law or regulation.

Examples of special park uses include weddings, first-amendment activities, privately owned (not for hire) seaplanes, events such as a ham radio operations, group activities (groups of 20 or more participants) and non-profit organization activities.
