Recreation Residence Program

The Term Permit Act of 1915 authorized the ownership and seasonal use of private cabins on the National Forest. We currently have 534 recreation residences managed under special use permits on the High Sierra Ranger District. This page contains documents that may be of use to holders of recreation residence special use permits. If you have any questions about this program or the resources on this webpage, please contact your permit administrator:
