A special use permit is required for activities that provide a benefit to an individual, group, or organization rather than to the public at large. These activities require some degree of management from the National Park Service if there is:
- the potential to interfere with usual visitor use patterns.
- congestion of highly visited areas such as the Osceola Landing and Picnic Area.
- possible impact on park resources.
Step 1: Determine if your activity needs a permit by reviewing these examples. Call the Permit Office, 715-483-2261, if you are unsure.
Step 3: Return the application to the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway, 401 N. Hamilton St., St. Croix Falls, WI, 54024. Note that most applications require a minimum of 4 weeks to fully process.
