Permits & Reservations

Prince William Forest Park offers many different ways in which you can enjoy the outdoors and learn about history and culture. Some areas of the park, including camping and cabin areas, require a reservation to access. Certain activities such as ceremonies and commercial photoraphy may require a Special Use Permit if they operate outside of the park's normal rules and regulations. Here you will find more information about different areas and services that require a reservation or permit.

All camping areas, with the exception of the Chopawamsic Backcountry Area, must be reserved through Recreation.gov. All reservations can be made online or by calling (877) 444-6777. Individuals who have an 'America the Beautiful' Senior Lifetime or Annual pass or an Access pass may receive discounted rates for some camping sites. Individual rates and seasons of availability for camping areas are listed on each site's webpage.
