Be sure to hit one, or all, of the top 10 things to do and see in Yellowstone country. There's Old Faithful, grizzly bears and gray wolves, rodeos and powwows, horseback riding, rafting and so much more.
It was the world’s first national park and is one of America’s most famous thanks to the Old Faithful Geyser and Grand Prismatic Spring. Come to Yellowstone to see grizzly and black bears, thousands of wild bison, packs of wolves, giant waterfalls and the largest concentration of active geysers on Earth.
In light of the spread of COVID-19, trying to find out what is open and closed in our national parks is a moving target these days. The park service is coordinating with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), state and local public health authorities, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to make its decisions on what to keep open or to close on a daily basis.
On May 2021, the National Park Service announced updated mask guidance allows for fully vaccinated visitors to enter federal buildings without masks, although it is still preferred for all visitors to wear masks, especially where social distancing cannot be maintained.
However, wearing masks is still required on all forms of commercial and public transportation in Yellowstone National Park at this time regardless of vaccination or negative test. This includes all family members or visitors over the age of two.
Masks must cover the nose and mouth and fit snugly around the nose and chin with no large gaps around the sides of the face. Masks not designed to be protective, masks with ventilation valves, and face shields do not meet the requirement.
