Park Service Proposing Changes To Old Faithful Lodging
YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. (AP) — Yellowstone National Park is considering changes to visitor and employee housing in the Old Faithful area.
One proposal allows existing Old Faithful Lodge cabin units that currently house park concessioner staff to be made available for overnight visitor use. The units are some of the most affordable lodging in the park.
That alternative would also allow for the construction of a new 77-room dormitory in the Old Faithful administrative area to house up to 144 employees displaced by the change.
The National Park Service is seeking public comment through Dec. 20 to help identify issues or concerns that the park staff should consider.
