Tips

  • You are responsible for the permit application and fee. We can advise with the permit, but cannot complete anything on your behalf, based on the National Park Service's rules.
  • The permit fee ranges from $240-500 ($500 for ceremonies at Shoshone Point).

  • Instructions for how to pay the nonrefundable application fee will be emailed to you after the park confirms receipt of application. By law, the park must recover costs associated with managing these permits and sites through these fees.
