Recreation Passes & Permits

Adventure Pass | Recreation Passes | Interagency Recreation Passes | Wilderness permits

Most national forest system lands are open, free of charge for your use and enjoyment.

If you plan to use a specialized facility (campground, boat launch, swimming site, etc.) in the forest, you may have to pay a recreation fee.

For additional information please visit the National Recreation Fee Information website.

All versions of the America the Beautiful Interagency Passports are available at any Forest Service office in southern California.

Adventure Pass

The Adventure Pass is for recreation use, designed to meet the special needs of the extraordinary geography of the southern California region and address the specific challenges we face with heavy dispersed recreation use.

The pass covers all occupants of the vehicle. Families may purchase a second, discounted pass for their other vehicles.  Visit our Adventure Pass website.

Recreation Pass Information

 All passes are sold at Forest Service offices and by some private vendors.
