Special Recreation and Commercial Permits
Special Recreation Permits are issued to organizations or individuals to allow the use of specific public land and related waters for commercial or competitive use.
The Special Recreation Permits allow the land stewards to coordinate and track commercial and competitive use of public lands. It also provides resource protection measures to ensure the future enjoyment of those resources by the public.
This process generally takes 30 to 90 days to complete depending upon the complexity of the applicant's operations plan.
Not all applications submitted receive a permit. Therefore, any action taken before receiving a special recreation permit authorization, such as advertising or expending funds, is premature and at the applicant’s risk.
