Doing Business With The Park

Commercial Use Authorizations
Kenai Fjords National Park allows commercial activities on park lands by issuing commercial use authorizations for outfitters and guides.
A Commercial Use Authorization (CUA) authorizes suitable commercial services to park area visitors in limited circumstances. For relevant laws, application forms and instructions, park-specific stipulations, and reporting requirements, see the Alaska Region's website.
Commercial Filming and Photography
Filming, photography, and sound recording may require a Special Use Permit (NPS Form 10-931) and the payment of location fees. For details, and to download the application form, see Commercial Filming and Photography.

Special Use Permits
If planning a special event within Kenai Fjords National Park, a Special Use Permit (NPS Form 10-930) is often required. This includes such events as:

  • Weddings
  • 1st Amendment Activities
  • Public Assemblies and Meetings
  • Other Special Events (festivals, sporting events, etc.)

Research Permits
A Scientific Research and Collecting Permit is required to conduct research or collect specimens on all National Park Service lands. Researchers are encouraged to contact the research coordinator early in the planning process to discuss proposed work and streamline the permitting process.
