Clackamas County Parks utilizes a permit system for items not generally allowed in day use areas of the parks. To enjoy activities such as amplified sound systems, air bouncers, and caterers, a written approval by the Parks Manager is required. To have your request considered, please follow these steps.
At least 3 weeks before your event, contact the Parks Administration Office to request a permit. The Office will begin the permit process and get manager’s approval for the permit(s) requested. The fee is $20 for each requested item. A copy of your approved permit will be emailed to you.
If you are procuring your activity through a third party vendor, such as renting equipment or hiring a caterer, insurance and an indemnification letter are required.
A certificate of liability insurance from your insurance provider naming Clackamas County as additionally insured. The minimum amount must be $1,000,000 per single occurrence, and $2,000,000 annual aggregate covering the date of the reservation(s).
A signed indemnification letter (provided by Clackamas County Parks) holding Clackamas County harmless from all claims and actions as specified.
Alcohol and Glass Beverage Containers: If you, or your group, wish to serve alcohol and/or use glass beverage containers in your reserved picnic area, there is no “paper permit” involved. Simply let us know if you plan on having these items and we will note your account. The area must pass a ranger’s inspection (clean, no-damage or broken glass) for the security deposit to be returned to you. No notification needed for reserved campsites. No alcohol allowed in unreserved or general day use areas.

When booking a reservation or purchasing a parking pass, sometimes you may receive an "Awaiting Payment" notice regarding your payment. Awaiting Payment means that, for some reason, the payment did not go through. It could have been a typo in the credentials entered. The 15 or 16 digit credit number should not have spaces expiration date should be four numbers only, 2-digits for each the month & year, no dashes or slashes and the CVV/CVC, the Credit Verification Value/Code, is the 3 or 4 digit number at the end of the signature line. Or it could mean that the card is invalid or expired.
You can go back to your shopping cart and try your payment again. Sites in your shopping cart are held for 10 minutes, after which the site is dropped and will have to be reserved again.
