Following a two-month closure to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, Grandfather Mountain reopened in May 2020, with ticket sales moving online.

Effective Sept. 16, 2021, in accordance with guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control, Grandfather Mountain is requiring that all guests wear face coverings while indoors in the park.

The online reservation system remains in effect. Bridge Club members will continue to receive complimentary admission, per their membership agreement, and are not required to book their visit in advance. However, members must present a valid Bridge Club membership card upon arrival. Passholders (VIP, complimentary day pass, tickets purchased from lodgings, etc.) are not required to book in advance either.

Opening dates and operational procedures are subject to change, based on current conditions and federal, state and local regulations. As such, those planning a trip are encouraged to visit for updates.
