Glacier, Yellowstone Park access limited during shutdown

Posted: Updated:

National Park access will be limited during the ongoing government shutdown.

That means restrooms, trash collection, plowing, campground reservation, check-in check-out services, backcountry permits and public information will not be available. NPS also says national and regional offices will be closed to the public. Some areas may also close without notice.
