Commercial Use Authorizations

Thank you for your interest in providing commercial services at Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument.

At this point we are building a commercial services program, with the hopes of having a variety of services available to visitors, including (but not limited to) food, shuttles, guided hikes and bike rides, instructional workshops (photography, art, etc.), concierge or delivery services, and motorized scenic tours. We invite your creativity though, and welcome other ideas that you may have.

Commercial Use Authorizations (CUAs) are required of any and all operators who provide any goods, services, activities, or other services to the general public which take place, at least in part, in the park.

There is a $100 application fee, as well as a $100 cost recovery charge for the staff time necessary to process applications. At this time we are focused on having limited barriers to entry, so these fees are much lower than you might find at other National Park Service units. While we are attempting to keep things simple, please be aware that as our Commercial Services program develops, we may further modify the fees or conditions to more closely match operational needs.

Application will be accepted on a rolling basis. Every effort will be made to process applications within two weeks, but it may be up to four weeks.
