FLOODING IMPACTING YELLOWSTONE REGION

Updated: 7 days ago

JUNE 20, 2022: While the Northern entrances to Yellowstone National Park are temporarily closed, the Southern entrances will open June 22 at 8 am. To ensure the south loop does not become overwhelmed with visitors and to balance park resource protection and economic interests of surrounding communities, the park is instituting an interim visitor access plan, referred to as the Alternating License Plate System (ALPS).
