Certain transportation into Yellowstone National Park requires an additional permit different from that of a recreating visitor.
The Park Supplier Permit allows verified providers of services or products to the National Park Service, its partners, and authorized concessioners entry into the park. There is no fee for Park Supplier Permits. Please contact the Visitor Services Office for more information.
All individuals traveling through Yellowstone National Park for business outside of the park must secure a commercial travel permit allowing us to control and evaluate this use to ensure this type of travel does not adversely impact the park and visitors.
Things to Know
The transport of any hazardous materials to the National Park Service or any of the concessioners inside the park requires a hazardous materials transport permit in addition to a Park Supplier Permit. Transport of hazardous materials on US Highway 191 within the boundaries of Yellowstone National Park (milepost 11 north to milepost 31) also requires an annual hazardous materials permit.
Oversized Boat Transport
Oversized boats may be transported from an entrance station to Bridge Bay Marina and back with a special use permit. Oversized boat transport permits are required for loads wider than 8.5’, taller than 13.5’, or longer than 75’. Aquatic Invasive Species inspections and boating permits are required to launch any watercraft on Yellowstone National Park waters.
