Camping Permit Online Application

This is only an application for a DCNR-Bureau of Forestry Camping Permit. This is NOT a reservation system. Campsites are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Obtaining a permit does not guarantee that the camp site will be unoccupied. This online system is a pilot program, and only a few forests districts are offering a limited number of campsites available through the online request process at this time. All campsites are available by contacting each State Forest District Office. Please choose a campsite from one of the State Forests indicated on the map, then complete the electronic form below. All fields must be completed. A valid e-mail address is required. You will receive a Camping Permit Number, and other pertinent information, in your e-mail account pending approval from the State Forest District Office.

Please Note: The district offices will only be able to process requests between the hours of 8am-4pm, Monday - Thursday, and 8am-Noon, Friday. If you submit a request during the weekend, the district office will not process the request until the next business day.

Please choose a forest district by clicking on the map below, or from the list.
