The Special Use Permit (SUP) authorizes activities that benefit an individual, group or organization, rather than the public at large; and that require written authorization and management control in order to protect park resources and the public interest.
A SUP is required for any organized activity or event involving more than 20 people. Group size is limited to 75 people. This limit is based on limited parking and facilities, potential conflict with other visitor activities, and impacts to natural and cultural resources.
Types of permitted activities include:
- Scattering of ashes
- First Amendment activities
- Horseback riding
- Commercial Filming/Photography

Applications for Special Use Permits must be received by the park no less than two weeks prior to your proposed activity date. The only exception to this is for First Amendment activities; please allow two days for these permits if possible
There is no application fee for permits for non-commercial activities.
