Special Uses and Events
Special events may be permitted by the Superintendent when there is a meaningful association between the park and the event, and the event will contribute to visitor understanding of the park's significance. Individual requests for a special park use permit will be reviewed and evaluated by the Superintendent.

Sharing the Park- A filming or photography permit does not give exclusive rights to the permittee or allow the permittee to restrict visitors from any location. Normal visitor use patterns will not be interrupted for longer than five minutes, and only as specified in the approved permit. Filming or photography permit activities may not occur simultaneously with other permitted activities unless authorized by the NPS, or unduly conflict with scheduled park activities such as interpretive presentations. Visitors will be allowed to observe filming activities.
Commercial Filming/Photography permits are provided on an individual basis and there is a $50.00 non-refundable application processing fee per permit.
For questions about commercial filming/photography permits, call the Special Park Uses Coordinator at 841-893-6555 or contact via e-mail.
