Nevada Field Offices administer Special Recreation Permits (SRPs) for Commercial, Vendor, Competitive, Organized Group Use and Special Area Use. This page provides an overview of Nevada SRPs and their associated fees. Please see list below for the appropriate field office contact if you have any further questions regarding the Special Recreation Permit program or if you would like to hold a pre-application consultation. 

Special Recreation Permits 

Special Recreation Permits (SRPs) are authorizations that allow specific recreational uses of the public lands and related waters. They are issued as a means to manage visitor use, protect natural and cultural resources, and provide a mechanism to accommodate commercial recreational uses. Authorized by the Land and Water Conservation Fund Act, permits are required for the following types of uses: commercial, vending, competitive, individual or group use in special area, organized group activities and events.

Objectives of the Special Recreation Permit Program

The objective of the BLM recreation permitting system is to satisfy recreational demand within allowable use levels in an equitable, safe, and enjoyable manner while minimizing adverse resource impacts and user conflicts. In issuing recreation permits to recreation users of public lands, the BLM authorizes permittees’ use of the lands and/or related waters for permitted purposes. This represents a privilege to use public lands and/or related waters which is subject to the terms and conditions of the permits.
