Permits & Reservations


We appreciate being contacted if you are planning a visit with more than 10 people in your group, whether it be a bus tour or a big family visit. We strive to make your visit the best experience it can be!

School groups are asked to supply a minimum of one adult chaperone for every 10 students. If there are students with special needs, please indicate the type of need for the student.
