Non Viewing Access Permits

Non viewing Access Permits allow people to visit the sanctuary for purposes other than viewing bears. These are issued at the discretion of the Regional Supervisor, Division of Wildlife Conservation, under the delegated authority of the Commissioner. There is a $25 application fee (per applicant) but no permit fee for this type of permit. Contact the McNeil support staff to apply for this form of permit. (see the Contact McNeil page).
