Permits & Reservations

Reservations

Reservations are not required for any areas or activities within the park & preserve, except for groups.

If you are traveling in a group (i.e. nonprofit, educational, commercial, guided, etc.) please contact the park several months before your travel dates for permit requirements and group size limits.

NOTE: Commercial transporters are required to ensure that all of their clients get the opportunity to receive a backcountry orientation from park rangers prior to entering the park and preserve. Please take a moment to complete our voluntary registration form prior to your trip into the backcountry.
