Event/Commercial Permits

Plan Ahead

Special use authorizations provide use of National Forest System lands for a wide variety of activities. Authorizations are issued to commercial and noncommmercial operations which provide use of and access to these lands.  Permits are also issued for private, non-exclusive use.  Depending on the complexity of the proposal, obtaining a special use authorization can sometimes be a lengthy process. In order to facilitate this process, coordinate early with the District where you would like to operate.

Not all proponents receive a permit, therefore any action taken before receiving a special use authorization, such as advertising or expending funds, is premature and at the proponent's risk.
