Special park use
Permits are required for short-term activities that take place in a park area and provide a benefit to an individual, group or organization, rather than the public at large. These activities require written authorization and some degree of management control from the NPS in order to protect park resources and the public interest; and are not prohibited by law or regulation.

The National Park Service may permit a special park use providing the activity will not cause derogation of the park's resources or values, visitor experiences, or the purpose for which the park was established. Primary consideration will be given to potential resource damage, anticipated disruption of normal public use, and previously approved permitted activities. Please review the Superintendent's Compendium for guidance on your proposed activity prior to submitting a special use permit application.
