A Boating/Fishing event permit from the Fish & Wildlife Natural Resources Police is required for safety reasons when holding an event on the water.
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 the Natural Resources Police 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 listed in the application form, below. 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.
