Frequently asked questions

What if I never receive a text message? We give you a free tracker so you can try again!

Do you book permits on my behalf? At the moment, it’s up to you to book the permit on Recreation.gov after you receive the notification.

How does it work? We check Recreation.gov every 30 minutes for cancelations. When we find a cancelation that matches your dates, we send you a text message.

This site is working too well! I already have 3 permits for the year and now have a new problem — I have too many trips to choose from in a short amount of time.”

Going outdoors is getting harder every year. In 2021, you had less than a 1% chance of winning the Enchantments lottery in August!

There are 2 reasons for that:

  1. Parks are restricting access to the most popular trails by requiring permits
  2. Permits are released far in advance, making it impossible to make last-minute plans

That’s why I’ve built Outdoor Status ⁠— to give us back the flexibility we need to plan trips.
