Carlsbad Caverns Closed Due To Flooding

As of 12:30 p.m. (MT) Carlsbad Caverns National Park is closing due to potential road flooding. As rains increase, so does the potential for safety issues for drivers. The decision was made to close the park completely and ask all visitors and employees to evacuate. The park should reopen in the morning at 8:00 a.m. per usual business. If anything changes you will be notified.
