There is gross vehicle weight restriction (GVWR) preventing vehicles over 20,000 pounds from entering the park until further notice. This includes a full-sized school bus. Many park roads remain damaged and Federal Highways has advised that we restrict weight until repairs can be made.
The park is willing to incur a small amount of risk for additional roadway damage to continue mission critical education programs, which includes K-12 accredited schools conducting curriculum based education within the park. This is limited to two schools per day, on a first-come, first-served basis. If you would like to request a GVWR exemption for an educational visit, please email e-mail us at least 2 weeks prior to your visit. Please note that a GVWR exemption request is different from an educational fee waiver request.
