Dead Horse Point State Park

Special Use Permits

Special Use Permits are required for any events or activities beyond normal park activities. Commercial activities such as filming, photography, hiking tours, mountain biking tours, workshops, and weddings all require a Special Use Permit.  Contact Dillon Hoyt if you are unsure if your adventure requires a Special Use Permit.

Download the Special Use Permit application and submit it as least 30 days before the event. Each permit requires a $10 application fee and a minimum of a $50 permit fee (varies by request). All fees will be collected (usually over the phone using a credit card) after the application has been reviewed park management, signatures have been acquired, and before the permit is finalized.

Some events require participant liability waivers and proof of liability insurance (liability limits vary by activity). Most weddings do not require liability insurance.

When a certificate of liability is required please list: State of Utah Parks and Recreation, 1594 W. North Temple #116, Salt Lake City, UT 84116 as additionally insured in the certificate holder section of the certificate.

For more information or to submit an application, please contact Dillon Hoyt, Park Manager, at (435) 259-2614 or dhoyt@utah.gov.
