Passes & Permits

Recreation Passes​

Just a reminder that recreation opportunities in American Fork Canyon are limited as the seasons are changing. The Information Stations are only providing information to visitors at this time.  You have to purchase your pass before you go or you can use the fee tubes with cash or check.
To purchase your day use pass before you leave home go to:
Or from your mobile device: search Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest.  Self-service pay stations are also available throughout the canyon, online passes are the preferred. Be sure to have your pass on display while parked at any recreation sites. We honor all America the Beautiful Federal Lands and Mirror Lake Hwy passes. We are still operational under modified safety protocols and appreciate your support.


May be required when extra measures are needed to protect natural or cultural resources.  It is good to check ahead of time to find out what types of passes and/or permits are required for different activies before entering the forest.
