The Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) issues short-term and long-term permits for a variety of activities at parks, beaches, forests, and reservations. These activities include 1-day walkathons, construction projects, 5-year commercial agreements, and more. Some permits are awarded through a competitive bidding process, and others you need to request.
