In a press release sent today, Yellowstone National Park announced that that all inbound traffic into Yellowstone National Park is currently closed due to heavy flooding, rockslides, and extremely hazardous conditions. 


This closure will impact those planning to spend the night in Yellowstone National Park by way of Jackson. In coordination with the Town of Jackson, Jackson Police Department, Teton County, and the Teton County Sheriff’s Office, those impacted may spend the night at the Teton County Fairgrounds for self-contained camping. There are no water, sewer, or electric hook-ups or other amenities. Campfires are not allowed, and users are expected to clean-up after themselves and their pets.


The closure of Yellowstone National Park could last several days or more, so visitors are encouraged to plan accordingly. Temporary camping at the Teton County Fairgrounds will only be available the night of June 13, 2022.


Jackson Police Department is on-site this afternoon to direct parking. The Teton County Fairgrounds is located at 305 W Snow King Drive in Jackson, Wyoming.
