Boiling River & Firehole

Does anyone know if these wading/swimming areas are open yet? We will be there in 2 weeks.

Thanks!

Boiling River is still closed, according to the website. https:/…conditions.htm

I assume, but can't find, that Firehole swimming area is as well. Spring melting is still underway in the area.

From the YNP website:

<<Boiling River is closed. Be cautious around all streams: due to an above-average snowpack streams are running high and are dangerous to cross. Streams which are crossable in the morning may rise to unsafe levels by afternoon. Don’t get caught on the wrong side of a stream.>>

I would assume that the Firehole area is still closed too for the above reasons, but you can check at a Ranger station when you arrive for more up-to-date info.

Both are still closed. The rivers are running much too high for safety.

ENJOY!
