Bandelier Closed During Government Shutdown

Los Alamos, NM – Due to the lapse of appropriations and the subsequent shutdown of the federal government, Bandelier National Monument is closed for the safety of visitors and park resources.

Many other national park sites across the country will remain as accessible as possible while still following all applicable laws and procedures. 

Please visit and select “Find a Park” for additional information about access to other parks and sites in this area. However, note that because of the federal government shutdown, NPS social media and websites are not being monitored or updated and may not reflect current conditions.
