What To Expect
Rocky is busiest throughout the summer and on fall weekends. In these busy times, especially between 10 am and 3 pm, you should expect:
- Long lines and wait times at entrance stations
- Full parking lots
- Congested roads (i.e. heavy traffic)
- Busy trails
- Full campgrounds
When crowding reaches unsafe levels, vehicle access may be restricted in the Alpine Visitor Center parking area, Bear Lake corridor, and Wild Basin area. In 2016, these restrictions were put in place most weekends from late June through September.
