Due to the increase in COVID-19 transmission rates and in support of guidance to help reduce its spread, Bandelier will temporarily limit indoor services. Effective August 19, the visitor center is open only to those who would like to pay an entrance fee or purchase a pass, one at a time. The museum and theater are temporarily closed. Rangers are available outside the visitor center to provide information, orientation and answer your questions, 8:30am-4:30pm, daily. Ranger programs are still available. Visitors are required to wear a mask in all facilities - Visitor Center, Cafe and Park Store. All trails and outdoor areas are open.
When parking lots fill to capacity, vehicles may be turned away. On the weekends beginning July 3, 2021, visitors will have the option to drive back to White Rock to catch the shuttle bus to visit Bandelier.
Shuttle Bus is an option for weekend visitors - not a requirement
