Do I Need a Permit?
Consider these questions:
If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, you may need a permit from the BLM.
Commercial Use is defined as recreational use of public land and related waters for business or financial gain. When any person, group, or organization makes or attempts to make a profit, receive money, amortize equipment, or obtain goods or services, as compensation from participants in recreational activities occurring on public land, the use is considered commercial.
Examples: Outfitters and guides, jeep tours, horse-trail and wagon-train rides, cattle drives, educational tours or uses, and photography associated with a recreational activity.
Organized-group/event permits are for noncommercial and noncompetitive group activities and recreation events.
Examples:A large scout camp out, a fraternity activity, a large family reunion, an educational tour or use, or a dual-sport event.
