For immediate release: June 13, 2022
Due to hazardous flooding conditions, Yellowstone National Park has temporarily closed its entrances and is evacuating all visitors through the south and West Yellowstone gates due to flooding at the other entrances. Please stay away from the area if possible.
Before visitors or residents head north from the park to seek accommodations, we encourage you to check for availability. There is limited lodging in Bozeman, and there is no cellular service for 70 miles between West Yellowstone and Bozeman.
There will be erosion mitigation along the roadway in the Gallatin Canyon on U.S. Highway 191. Traffic will be delayed. If you are working in the Big Sky area and plan to return to Bozeman, we recommend leaving early.
