Montana State Parks host millions of visitors annually. Managing resources for tomorrow's generations, while making sure visitors have a safe and enjoyable experience today, can be a challenging task. Policies and permits help the public and managers plan for activities, protect resources, and enhance public safety. A wide range of activities may require a permit—from planning a company picnic, filming a motion picture, operating a commercial business, or even hiding a geocache.
These permits are provided to help Montanans and their guests use and protect their park system. These permits represent the most frequently requested permits. Other permits may be required for use. Refer to individual park pages for additional details.
