If you are planning a short-term event or activity in the park that is beyond the scope of a standard visit, then you may need a permit.
Special Park Use Permits are authorizations from the National Park Service that are required prior to short-term activities:
- that take place in the park
- provide a benefit to an individual, group or organization, rather than the public at large
- require some degree of management control from the NPS (in order to protect park resources and the public interest
- are not prohibited by law or regulation
Examples of activities that would require a written authorization from the park in the form of a special park use permit apply to individuals and groups depending on the impact of the event on the resource and staff. These might include (but are not limited to) weddings, First Amendment activities, a cross-country race, commercial photography or video, and group activities.
If you'd like to apply for a permit or have any questions, please contact the Chief Ranger at (620) 285-6911 or e-mail e-mail us.
