Which National Parks are Open This Labor Day?
Labor Day signifies the official end of summer, but that doesn’t mean the fun has to end. If you’re looking to plan one last vacation before the holiday season arrives, look no further than this list of national parks that are open on Labor Day.
With over 5 million park visitors a year, the Grand Canyon is a popular spot to bring the whole family. Visit over Labor Day weekend and enjoy park ranger programs such as Critter Chat, Condor Talk, Desert View Sunset Talk, and much more! Extend your weekend of fun by taking a road trip towards Las Vegas and booking a river adventure tour at Black Canyon River Adventures.
Mountaineers and thrill-seekers, you’ll want to direct your attention to this national park. Grand Teton is the ideal spot for climbing, hiking, sightseeing, canoeing, wildlife spotting, and so much more. Fill your Labor Day weekend at Grand Teton with activities that include whitewater rafting, hiking tours, and ATV riding.
Have you heard of Isle Royale National Park? Not many people have. Just off the coast of Michigan in the middle of Lake Superior, Isle Royale is a remote island where people go to relax and immerse themselves in the wilderness. Take a boat or hiking tour while you’re here to learn more about the history of the island. Stay in comfort at Rock Harbor Lodge, the only full-service lodging on the island.
If you love geology as much as we do, then the Badlands in South Dakota is the perfect place for you to explore! With several daily tours available, you can spend the entire day learning about geology, paleontology, fossils, and more. Cedar Pass Lodge offers the best views of the Badlands, whether you rent out a cabin, camp, or bring your RV.
Did you know that Bryce Canyon has some of the world’s best air quality? According to the National Park Service, onlookers can spot three states and see over 200 miles away atop some of the peaks in Bryce Canyon. This makes for some great stargazing opportunities as well! Nothing beats camping under the stars (at Red Canyon Village) to wrap up your summer.
You’ll be surprised to find that many national parks are open 365 days a year, weather permitting. It’s important to check the National Park Service website before you plan your trip to stay up to date on recent conditions and road closures.
