I ordered my permit on line on a Thursday. Right away, I received an email telling me it has been shipped. I received my permit on Monday. Extraordinary! Why can't every place respond so efficiently? Great Job!

I was really impressed. I think I ordered on a Saturday night and had them by Tuesday with standard delivery to Minneapolis. It certainly took any worry about getting ready for the trip. If you haven't ridden in the Black Hills, it is extraodinary. Very few people on the trails themselves, the Forest Roads see the majority of the traffic. (Memorial Weekend 2016)

I was very pleased how easy it was to apply for trail permits for the Black Hills National Park. I'm no computer expert, but the web site was easy to navigate and the permits only took a couple days to arrive at my door step, no wasting time to run around and get the permits when arriving at the park.The permits are already on the machines and we will be 4-wheeling a few minutes after we arrive at the park. Great!
