Non-Commercial Gatherings

Forest Service policy allows gatherings that have no commercial component (for example no payment made to wedding planner, officiant, caterer, or photographer), and include fewer than 75 people on Forest Service land without a special use permit.

If payment is going to be made to any party or the gathering includes more than 75 people, a permit would be required. Please contact the Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit office at 530-543-2600 for information on available permits.
