For-profit and nonprofit organizations must have special permission to run trips in the Park.

Over fifty for-profit and nonprofit groups run over 200 trips in the park for over 2,000 visitors every year. For-profit groups are required to obtain a Commercial Use Authorization (CUA), and nonprofit groups are required to obtain a Special Use Permit (SUP) before running trips in the park. This does not include Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and other membership organizations without paid staff leading trips.

Call the Concessions Assistant at (360) 565-3028 to start the application process.

Groups cannot register for permits without the CUA or SUP.

If your group is a nonprofit organization, click here for the Special Use Permit (SUP) page with the SUP application, Permit Request Form, and Fee Grid.

If your group is a for-profit company, click here for the Commercial Use Authorization (CUA) page with the CUA application, Permit Request Form, and CUA Risk Form.
