Permits are required year-round for overnight camping and day use. Visitors should also be aware that a quota system is in place during the summer months for the 45 destination zones within the wilderness. This system helps to disperse visitors throughout the area, providing an opportunity for solitude and reflection. Seventy percent of the available permits are available for advanced reservation. The remaining quota is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
