Yellowstone is becoming increasingly user-friendly for travelers with disabilities. Those who are blind or have permanent disabilities can obtain a free Interagency Access Pass, which allows lifetime access to all national parks and federal fee areas. The pass must be obtained in person and is available at any entrance point to Yellowstone.
Wheelchair-accessible accommodations are available in all park lodges. For detailed information about accessible features throughout the park, visit www.nps.gov/yell/planyourvisit/accessibility.htm. All campgrounds except Fishing Bridge, Pebble Creek, Slough Creek, and Tower Fall have at least one wheelchair-accessible campsite.
Wheelchair-accessible restrooms with sinks and flush toilets are located at all developed areas except West Thumb. Accessible vault toilets are located at West Thumb and Norris, all campgrounds, and in most scenic areas and picnic areas.
Many of Yellowstone’s roadside attractions, including the south rim of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, West Thumb Geyser Basin, much of the Norris and Upper Geyser basins, Mammoth Hot Springs, and parts of the Mud Volcano and Fountain Paint Pot areas, are negotiable by wheelchair. Visitor centers at Old Faithful, Grant Village, Mammoth, and Canyon are wheelchair accessible, as are the Norris Museum and the Fishing Bridge Visitor Center.
Wheelchair-accessible parking is available at all major developed areas and some overlooks and picnic areas.
