Special Use Permits (SUP)
First State National Historical Park is home to many beautiful rolling hills and winding creeks and rivers, which make it a popular place for weddings and special events. A Special Use Permit (SUP) is required for activities that provide a benefit to an individual, group, or organization, rather than the public at large and for activities that require some degree of management by the National Park Service in order to protect park resources and the public interest. Activities and events that require Special Use Permits include:
Generally filming permits are required and are issued for photography, filming, and associated sound recording when they involve props, models, professional crews, and casts or set dressings.
The Use of Drones is Prohibited
