Do I need a Special Use Permit?

An Office of Fishing and Boating Access (OFBA) “Special Use Permit” Is required for any organized events that take place at any OFBA facility. This includes, but not limited to events such as fishing tournaments, canoe and kayak races, sailing events, boat parades, ice fishing events, etc.

If you plan to use the parking area and or the boat ramp for your event you need a permit regardless of the size of the event. Parking is limited to 50 percent of the available parking for the months of July and August and 75 percent for the rest of the year.
