DINOSAUR | Dinosaur National Monument will remain accessible to visitors, unless safety concerns warrant their closure. Emergency and rescue services will be limited.

There will be no NPS-provided visitor services at Dinosaur National Monument, including public information, restrooms, trash collection, and facilities and roads maintenance (including plowing if applicable).

Because of the federal government shutdown, NPS social media and websites are not being monitored or updated and may not reflect current conditions. All park programs have been canceled. The Quarry Exhibit Hall and Quarry Visitor Center are closed.

The NPS will not be providing services for NPS-operated campgrounds, including maintenance, janitorial, and check-in/check-out. However, visitors in NPS-operated campgrounds will not be asked to leave unless safety concerns require such action.
