Attention: Yellowstone National park visitor


Yellowstone National park Temporary closed

National Park Service officials warned visitors who have plans to visit Yellowstone this winter that the roads there may not be safe for travel.

The National Park Service has shut down all entrances to Yellowstone National Park due to torrential rain and flooding. 

Staff are evacuating visitors from the country’s oldest national park, as well as other nearby locations, citing unprecedented levels of rainfall and flash flooding.

Park officials are urging visitors to keep away from the Grand Canyon after parts of a popular hiking trail were closed due to heavy rains. 

Some roads in the park have experienced substantial flooding, rockslides and mudslides, while other roadways are on the verge of being flooded, which would further restrict access around the park.

In 2021, after being closed to tourists for several days amid heavy flooding in Yellowstone and nearby areas, the park partially reopened on June 13th in time for the beginning of the summer season.
