Good news for tourists! Check out all the new requirements to visit National parks after Labor Day.
There is some good news for tourists who want to visit National Parks soon: it won't be necessary to have reservations after Labor Day!
During the course of the pandemic, there was a limited number of people who could visit a National Park per day. Now, timed reservations will no longer be necessary.
The National Park Service limited the entry of people into the National Parks to avoid the increase of positive COVID-19 cases. Going to the Sun Road will be the first one to eliminate the reservation requirements.
The majority of the 63 National parks won't require a reservation to visit them, with the exception of Hawaii's Haleakalā National Park.
Here're some parks that still need a reservation:
- Glacier National Park Going-to-the-Sun Road through Sept. 6.
- Yosemite National Park through Sept. 30.
- Rocky Mountain National Park through Oct. 11.
- Acadia Cadillac Summit Road through Oct. 19.
- Haleakalā National Park Sunrise reservations are required year-round.
In addition, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park will test a reservation system. To visit Yellowstone National Park, you don't need a reservation, except for specific activities like camping, fishing, or horseback riding.
