Commercial film and production companies that plan to film on park grounds are required to obtain a Film Permit. Permits are also required when:
- filming will take place requiring special access to buildings and sites
- filming in areas not open to the general public
- filming outside of the regular posted park hours
- when props or special effects are needed
Note: Eisenhower National Historic Site will increase its application processing fee for film permits from $50 to $100 beginning on March 15, 2018. The application fee is non-refundable and reimburses the park for expenses associated with processing the application.
We require 30 days prior to your proposed event or filming to process permit applications.
Individuals with a private camera for home use are not required to have a Film Permit.
