Yellowstone Vacations pet policies

Pet Policy


Yellowstone National Park is Open!

Yellowstone's Upper and Lower Loops are now accessible to all visitors.

Please Note: The North entrance is currently closed, but will be re-opening as of October 15, 2022! Until then, visitors will need to enter through the West, South, or East.

Upon the re-opening of the North entrance, visitors will enter through the historic Roosevelt Arch, then take Old Gardiner Road, which is a temporary road to be used until repairs on the main road are complete.
