Acadia National Park has announced new permit requirements for groups of 20 or more.

If you are planning an event that will have 30 or more people at a stationary event, such as a birthday party, picnic or family reunion, you will need a special permit. A non refundable fee of $50 is required when you file your special permit request

If you are in a group of 20 or more, that will be on hiking trails, carriage roads or bike paths, you will also need a special permit. Again, a non refundable fee of $50 is required when you file your special permit request.

Constitutionally protected first amendment activities that will be attended by 25 or more people require a special permit.

A special permit request does not serve as permission for the event to take place.
