Please see processing timeline and plan requests accordingly. Employees will process requests and take payments for permits over the phone Mondays thru Wednesdays only, during regular business hours from 8 am to 12 pm and 1 pm to 4:30 pm.

Each year, the Forest Service receives thousands of individual and business applications for authorization for use of National Forest Service land for such activities as water transmission, agriculture, outfitting and guiding, recreation, telecommunication, research, photography and video productions, and granting road and utility rights-of-ways. The Forest Service carefully reviews each application to determine how the request affects the public's use of NFS land. Normally, NFS land is not made available if the overall needs of the individual or business can be met on non-federal lands. For more information on these special uses, go here.
