National Parks

Yellowstone National Park & Grand Teton National Park welcome us back gradually with open arms!

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Yellowstone and Grand Teton officials have made tough decisions for the greater good of park visitors. They've now made a fun (while still safe) decision!

The parks are partially open, though neither will offer overnight lodging, food service, or visitor centers. Specifically:
  • Two of Yellowstone's four entrances are open - the South Entrance and East Entrance - and provide access to the park's lower loop to Lake, Canyon, Norris, Madison, and Grant Village. This loop reaches much of the park and is home to Old Faithful, Yellowstone Lake, and many geothermal features.
  • Both of Grand Teton National Park's entrances are open - the South entrance from the Teton Park Road and Moose-Wilson Road, as well as the West entrance in Moran, Wyoming. Public restrooms and day hiking on seasonally-accessible trails are open as well.

Please remember to be clean, careful, and connected during this time. Enjoy visiting the parks and don't forget that in time even more adventures will be at your fingertips!

Sit back, relax, and view the famous Teton Mountain Range - and other incredible views - in real time on our webcams. Soon enough we hope you'll see them in person!
