I arrived on Friday the 19th, the last day before the government shutdown. I went out the next morning and everything seemed to be just like normal, which is what I expected because the road from Gardiner through Mammoth to Cooke City is open year-round, and that's the only access to Cooke City in the winter. Things started changing on Sunday the 21st when the tag board at Mammoth Campground was covered with a sheet of metal. I was worried that I'd be kicked out, but there was no indication that the campground was closed. Later that day, a ranger knocked on the door of my RV and gave me my money back that I put in the self-service drop box on Friday — never had that happen before. The "bad news" is that the government reopened on Monday the 22nd, and they started accepting (demanding?) payments for the campground again on the 23rd. :)
