Gallatin National Forest personal use mushroom harvest permits are now available for purchase! Details here:

Personal use permits are $20 and are now available at ranger district offices. Some amount of mushroom flush is expected through July across the districts. Mushroom seasons will likely vary somewhat, depending on local weather conditions and mushroom availability.

Personal use permits allow an individual to harvest up to 5 gallons of mushrooms per day. Mushrooms harvested under a personal use permit must be cut in half lengthwise before they are transported from the forest. Mushroom harvesting is not allowed within designated wilderness areas, except for incidental use. Incidental use means a small amount to be consumed within a day or two. Commercial use permits, which allow the sale of mushrooms collected on the National Forest, are NOT available at this time.

Recently burned areas often provide especially productive springtime mushroom harvest opportunities. Personal use harvesting is allowed within the 2012 Millie Fire area, in the Storm Castle drainage near Gallatin Canyon. It’s also allowed in those burned areas on the Yellowstone Ranger District outside of wilderness near Pine Creek Campground and South Deep Creek Trailhead.

Information about the Gallatin National Forest’s mushroom program and road conditions is available by contacting the local ranger district offices.
