Getting Married in Rocky Mountain National Park
Congratulations on your forthcoming wedding! Wedding ceremonies in Rocky Mountain National Park are authorized through a Special Use Permit that requires a non-refundable administrative fee of $150. Normal park entrance fees apply for all vehicles associated with the wedding. Carpooling or shuttling is strongly encouraged, and may be required, as parking space is limited in some areas of the park.
Applications for a Special Use (Wedding) Permit may be applied for up to one year in advance and must be approved by the Chief Park Ranger. Additional information on weddings can be obtained by contacting the Concessions Management Office at 970-586-1209 or writing to:
Weddings are not permitted in public facilities such as visitor centers, roadside turnouts, parking areas, overlooks, or in special wildlife viewing areas. No sites can be reserved for the exclusive use of your event. Scheduled park programs and activities may be taking place at the same time and in the same general area
Most designated sites in the park can only accommodate small groups of up to 20 people. For non-designated sites not on the list please contact the Concession Office for further information.
The number of sites available to accommodate larger wedding parties (21 and more) is limited due to conflicts with high visitation, resource protection concerns, etc.
