Special Activity Agreements / Permits
A Special Activity Agreement (SAA)/ Permit may be required if you want to do an unusual activity or hold an organized group activity.
What kinds of events usually require a Special Activity Permit?
Some examples are:

- Unguided school or church groups

Our most common photo permit
is $55, which consists of a $30 processing fee and a $25 flat-rate fee. Most photo permits are for a calendar quarter.
I would like to host another kind of event, can I still get a SAA?
If you have another kind of event in mind or if you are unsure if your event is suitable for Roxborough State Park, please contact the park at 303-973-3959 or by email at
Roxborough.Park@state.co.us with details about your event or activity and we will let you know if you are in need of a Special Activity Agreement.
How soon should I apply for a Special Activity Permit?
Please submit your application at least 90 days ahead of the date of your event or activity to see if you need to complete a special activity agreement. In some cases, such as for a photography permit, a shorter application period is allowed.
Please Note: Applications that are not submitted for consideration far enough in advance may be rejected due to lack of availability or application processing time.
What forms do I need to fill out to apply for a permit?
Please fill out this
Special Activity Agreement Application for your event or group. If you are applying for a basic photo permit, please fillout this Photo Permit. Please submit all forms by email (preferred) to
