Xanterra Parks & Resorts has received word from the U.S. National Park Service that the gates and roads into the national parks operated by Xanterra will remain open if there is a government shutdown.

This means that Xanterra’s lodges, restaurants, retail, concessions and services will be open for business as usual and welcoming guests and visitors from around the world.

This includes Yellowstone, Grand Canyon, Crater Lake, Mt. Rushmore, Zion, the Oasis at Death Valley and Grand Canyon Railway (which runs from Williams, AZ to the South Rim of Grand Canyon).
