Yosemite National Park to Re-Implement Day-Use Reservations

Yosemite National Park to Re-Implement a Day-Use Reservation System Beginning on Friday, May 21, 2021 

Yosemite National Park – Beginning Friday, May 21, visitors to Yosemite National Park will need a day-use reservation to enter the park. The temporary day-use reservation system will allow the park to manage visitation levels to reduce risks associated with exposure to COVID-19.

Day-use reservations will be required for all users, including annual and lifetime pass holders. Each reservation is valid for three days.

Reservations are available on www.recreation.gov beginning at 8 a.m. on April 21, 2021. Each day-use reservation is valid for one vehicle and the occupants of that vehicle. For more detailed information, please visit: https://www.nps.gov/yose/planyourvisit/covid19.htm

Day-use reservations are included for all visitors staying overnight in the park. This includes reservations for The Ahwahnee Hotel, Yosemite Valley Lodge, Curry Village, Wawona Hotel, Housekeeping Camp and NPS-managed campgrounds. Day-use reservations are also included for all visitors with wilderness and Half Dome permits and visitors entering the park via YARTS buses and on permitted commercial tours.

  1. Get ready for perpetual reservation requirements. Given the steep decline in COVID numbers, the reintroduction of reservation requirements is not about “allowing the park to manage visitation levels to reduce risks associated with exposure to COVID-19” – it’s just about managing visitation levels. period.

    henceforth you can’t drive freely on a whim into our most amazing national park.
