Pass & Permits

The Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest manages resources to meet sustainable resource management objectives. In order to meet these objectives, permits may be required for the occupancy and use of Forest Service land.

Most National Forest System lands are open, free of charge for your use and enjoyment; however, some areas and activities do require fees or permits to help maintain, manage and improve the amenities that you enjoy.
