Special Event Permit

In general, Special Events are limited to the Group Camp and Group Picnic areas. Due to their size and potential impact to the public, Group Beach Picnic areas are currently not able to have Special Event approval. On rare occasions, events may be approved for the public day use areas at the discretion of the Superintendent; such events tend to be very large in scope, require more than 90 days for arrangement, and are limited to the off season.

In brief: Special Event Applications are required for items including (but not limited to):

  • Amplified music
  • PA systems
  • Bands
  • Disc jockeys
  • Bounce houses
  • Large circus tents (20' x 20' and larger)
  • Outside catering companies / food trucks 
  • Selling items / food
