Yellowstone National Park South Entrance, Yellowstone visitation

Yellowstone Waiving Admission Fees Next Monday

Yellowstone National Park will be waiving admission fees next Monday, January 19.

The Park is waiving fees in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, a federal holiday.

This admission fee waiver will apply to every vehicle at every entrance in the park, whether you’re traveling by car, bus, RV, snowmobile or snowcoach.

Next Monday will mark the first of nine Yellowstone free days, along with other national parks. The other free dates are listed below:

  • February 14, 15, 16 (President’s Day Weekend)
  • April 18, 19 (first weekend of National Park Week)
  • August 25 (National Park Service’s 99th birthday)
  • September 26 (National Public Lands Day)
  • November 11 (Veterans Day)

Currently, the only road open to all vehicles is the road between the North Entrance and Northeast Entrance. If you wish to travel to the interior of the Park, you will need to make a guided snowmobile or snowcoach trip.

In Old Faithful, the following sites are open to visitors: the Old Faithful Snow Lodge and Cabins, the Obsidian Dining Room, the Geyser Grill, the Bear Den Gift Shop and the Old Faithful Visitor Center.

Meanwhile, in Mammoth Hot Springs, the hotel, dining room and gift shop are open, as well as the Yellowstone General Store, medical clinic, campground, post office and Visitor Center.

Finally, 24-hour gasoline pumps are open in Mammoth Hot Springs and Tower Junction.
