  • Permits


    All commercial operations research or collection activities occurring on the Innoko Refuge require a Special Use Permit issued by the refuge headquarters office in McGrath. Examples of activities that require permits are hunting and fishing guide services, air and boat transportation services, commercial filming or photography, operations of helicopters, construction of structures, and removal of vegetation. To learn more about special use permits or to obtain an application, see Special Use Permits or visit the McGrath office.


  • Passes


    A series of passes covers the entrance and standard amenity fees charged for using federal recreational lands – including national wildlife refuges.

    Existing Golden Eagle Passports and National Parks Passes with an expiration date will be honored until they expire. Paper versions of the Golden Age or Golden Access Passports should be exchanged for the new Senior or Access passes. However, plastic Golden Age or Access passes are valid for the pass holder's lifetime and do not need to be exchanged.

    The Senior and Access passes are good for the lifetime of the holder and make available (to the pass holder only) 50 percent discounts on some expanded amenity fees.

    For the first time, decals and hangtags are available: decals for those who park open-topped vehicles (like Jeeps) or motorcycles at unstaffed federal recreation sites, and hangtags for those who anticipate parking closed vehicles at unmanned facilities.

    Please visit the National Wildlife Refuge System Web site for more information about passes.
