Special Recreation Permits

The BLM requires Special Recreation Permits for commercial recreation, competitive events, vending, use of special areas, and organized group activities on BLM-administered public lands in Alaska. These permits help BLM-Alaska manage visitor use, protect natural and cultural resources, and provide a way for commercial recreational uses to occur on public lands. BLM-Alaska's Special Recreation Permit Application Booklet (PDF, 2.1 MB) can help guide you through the process—from completing your application to submitting the required post-use report form. Also available for download is the Special Recreation Permit Application (PDF, 324 KB), which you can fill out on your computer. Viewing these documents requires free Adobe Reader software.
