Special Recreation Permits

Special Recreation Permits (SRP) are authorizations that can be issued as a means to manage uses of public lands and related waters.

The Monticello Field Office has a substantial backlog of expressed interest in SRPs.  The BLM is actively working to find more effective and efficient ways to address these requests.  In general, older requests will be addressed first.  If you are interested in pursuing an SRP and have not previously contacted us, you can find additional information on applying for an SRP on the BLM Utah Recreation page

Please recognize that due to the existing backlog, new applications may not be able to be processed this year.

The Monticello Field Office is located in the southeast corner of Utah and is part of the Colorado Plateau region. Dominating the landscape near Monticello are the Abajo Mountains, BLM land surrounds this huge monolith.

South of the Abajos is the Comb Ridge Monocline, a major crustal uplift about 80 miles in length. Nearby this major uplift is Grand Gulch, which cuts a serpentine swath through Cedar Mesa.

The Anasazi Indians left a legacy that includes hundreds of cliff dwellings and thousands of pictographs and petroglyphs. Muley Point Overlook sits on a high rim of Cedar Mesa and offers panoramic sweep across Monument Valley and the San Juan River country far below.
