Commercial Parking and State Park Use Permit Fees: Required for for-profit companies and businesses that use the lands and/or facilities of a state park to deliver services to the public for a fee, and when such use is similar or the same as the general public use, unless permitted by other means. May not be used to establish exclusive or continuous concession-type services. Activities of this type include but are not limited to canoe, horse, bicycle, or hiking trip outfitters and rental agencies (if they deliver equipment or services on park property), caterers, and for-profit day care centers (note that some day care centers are government or nonprofit). The agency reserves the right to withhold this or any other permit for commercial use of parks when such use is deemed to be not in keeping with the mission or intended purpose of the park, conflicts or interferes with other use of the park, or creates an unreasonable burden on the management of the park. Licensed commercial fishermen are not required to pay this fee, but are required to pay the applicable public user fee for the use of state park boat launches.
