There are two types of permits for portrait or commercial use photography or filming at Larimer County Parks and Open Spaces:

A single use, one-time permit (starts at $25 per use and is dependent upon the length of time needed and potential impact to park resources), or

An annual permit good for one year from the date of purchase ($150).

Permit Applications

Film and photography permits are valid only at Larimer County Parks or Open Spaces and not at local natural areas, state, or national parks/forests. Vehicle entrance permits, where required, will be charged in addition to the film or photography permit. No drones are allowed on any Larimer County Parks or Open Spaces and regulations require you and your subjects to stay on the trails.

All applications must be accompanied by an insurance certificate specifically naming Larimer County as an additional insured on the applicant's insurance policy. General liability limits should be no less than $1,000,000 per occurrence/$2,000,000 general aggregate. 

Applications must be submitted a minimum of 30 days before film or photography starts. Once the application is submitted, the appropriate personnel will review and determine cost. You will then receive a fee worksheet/invoice via email.
