JACKSON, Wyo. – On May 13 Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks announced they will begin the first phase of reopening tomorrow, May 18. The parks will begin increased recreational access and some limited visitor services, following closures due to coronavirus (COVID-19).
Yellowstone has announced a three-phased plan that initially opens only south and east entrances in Wyoming. Entrances in Montana will remain closed as Montana and Idaho still have out-of-state travel restrictions in place.
Grand Teton’s approach will look similar to Yellowstone’s. GTNP gates will open at noon Monday to recreational access and initial services including public restrooms, day-use hiking trails, biking, riverbank and lakeshore fishing, and some approved tours. Teton Park Road, Moose-Wilson Road, and North Park Road will also open.
