A Boating/Fishing event permit from Enforcement is required for safety reasons when holding an event on the water. The submission of an application does not guarantee the event will be approved. Do not publicize or promote your event until you receive your notification of acceptance. The permit issued by Enforcement does not authorize the use of access/launching facilities. The appropriate contact for access/launching facilities is provided on our permit.
A fishing tournament/boating event, when conducted on State Parks lands and water, may require an entrance or admission fee. Contact information for the Division of Parks & Recreation is indicated on our event application. The Division of Fish & Wildlife will not issue a permit if appropriate documentation of approval is not provided when holding an event on State Park lands. Please be advised activities such as fundraising, concessions, or other public events are prohibited within Fish & Wildlife lands without a special permit from the Director of Fish & Wildlife.
