RECREATION PASSES

Wondering whether an upcoming activity within the BLM Uncompahgre Field Office might require a permit?  On public lands and waterways, a Special Recreation Permit is typically required when a recreational activity involves business or financial gain, an organized group, a competitive event or activity, or occurs within a specially designated area (such as the Gunnison Gorge NCA).


If you are unsure whether or not an upcoming activity or event requires a special recreation permit, then begin by reading through the Uncompahgre Field Office and Gunnison Gorge National Conservation Area Special Recreation Permit Policy (2011).  This document also provides application timeframes and fees.  If you are still in doubt, call (970)240-5300 to speak with an Outdoor Recreation Planner.
 
In general, one of the following types of permits could be required:
 
  • Commercial Permit - For use of public lands and related waterways on a recreational basis for business or financial gain.
  • Competitive Permit - For any organized, sanctioned or structured use, event or activity on public land in which two or more contestants compete and participants apply for the event, a predetermined course or area is designated, or one or more individuals is contesting an established record (such as speed or endurance).
  • Special Area Use Permit - For individual (private non-commercial) recreation use in Special Areas designated by statute or Secretarial order (including components of the National Trails System, the National Wild and Scenic Rivers System, the National Wilderness System, and national conservation areas).
  • Organized Group Activity and Event Permit - For group outdoor recreation activities or events which are neither commercial nor competitive activities. Determination is based on planning decisions, resource concerns, user conflicts, public health and safety, and/or the need for monitoring.
