The South Entrance to Yellowstone National Park opens for automobile travel
at 8 a.m. Friday, May 11, allowing spring visitors from the Jackson,
Wyo., area access to Lake and Old Faithful. The roads from the park’s
North and West Entrances opened as scheduled on April 20, and the East
Entrance opened May 4.

Visitors should be aware that spring in Yellowstone is very unpredictable
and can still bring cold temperatures, high winds and falling snow. Even
cleared sections of roads can be narrow and covered with a layer of snow,
ice and debris. Drivers should use extreme caution as road clearing
operations can be ongoing at any time throughout the park.

By Friday, most visitor facilities will be open at Mammoth Hot Springs and
Old Faithful, and limited facilities will be available at Canyon, Fishing
Bridge and Grant Village. The opening of popular campgrounds and trails,
especially those in the backcountry, could be delayed.

A complete list of
facility and road closures is available at
nps.gov/yell/planyourvisit/open_closedates.htm.

Updated Yellowstone National Park road information is available 24 hours a
day by calling (307) 344-2117.
