Colorado River Valley Field Office Special Recreation Permits

Special Recreation Permits (SRPs) are required for a variety of recreation activities on BLM public lands. They are used to ensure public health and safety, protect natural and recreational resources, and ensure the public receives a fair monetary return for certain recreation uses of BLM public lands. SRPs are required for commercial activities, competitive events, certain organized group activities and in some designated special areas.
