All commercial users or operations conducted on Lake Woodruff National Wildlife Refuge are required by Federal law to obtain a special use permit from the refuge.

Requests to use refuge facilities for special functions and/or group activities must be made in writing to the refuge manager at least 6 weeks in advance of the activity.
